I went to the restaurant/club/bar Chaise Lounge in Chicago after work this evening. It is a lovely and decadent place in the Wicker Park neighborhood. It transports you to tropical South Beach with its ubundent outdoor seating, white upholstered tufted wall, and fresh palm plants.
I personally loved their assortment of Spanish olives to accompany my wine! It is luxurious without being stuffy, and is (as they say on their website) 'the perfect spot to begin or end an evening'.
