  • I love the 20's era vibe and decor. I also love the old school cash registers, which explains why it's a cash-only spot. Added perk that Capone used to hang here.
  • Chicago is also a music town. Stop into The Green Mill for cocktails and jazz and keep your fingers crossed that Patricia Barber is playing that night. Wow, what a voice. - Nikki
