Opened in June, 2012 Drumbar, which sits on the 18th floor of the Raffaello Hotel, has become one of Chicago’s most celebrated and buzzed about cocktail-focused bars, earning such accolades as “Top Ten Bars in Chicago” by Chicago Magazine, “Best Whiskey Bar” by GQ Magazine, “Chicago’s Best Rooftop Bars” by Forbes Magazine, and “One of the Best New Bars in America” by Details Magazine. Drumbar is a speakeasy style, cocktail-focused rooftop bar off Michigan Avenue atop the Raffaello Hotel. Located in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, the moody yet energetic bar boasts an intimate indoor lounge area and a beautiful outdoor terrace with views of Lake Michigan and the Hancock building. Drumbar’s spirits menu is comprised of an unparalleled selection of earnestly sought after whiskeys, scotches, bourbons and cognacs, available by the glass. Many of these are limited released, one-of-a-kind, highly allocated products meant to offer some of the unique spirits to our guests.
