Classic cocktails reign supreme at Moneygun, a laid-back West Loop hangout which recently expanded into the next door space that formerly housed St. Lou's Assembly. From 16OC, the restaurant group behind other Chicago cocktail gems such as Longman & Eagle, Punch House, and The Promontory, the chill bar takes a no-fuss, everyone-is-welcome attitude. That mentality extends into the atmosphere, which straddles the line between old-school corner tavern and Midwestern supper club. There's nothing stuffy about the place, where high-energy bartenders and loud music make it more of a raucous environment for enjoying Mojitos, Mai Tais, dirty Martinis, Last Words, White Russians, or Old Fashioneds. The drinks list goes deep with several dozen options pulled from the annals of drinks history. No reservations.
