My favorite bar is Dorian’s in Wicker Park. It is a “speakeasy” that looks like a small record shop in the front, but when you enter through the “listening booth,” you find yourself in what I think is one of the trendiest jazz clubs in Chicago. There’s always live music, and the drinks are very unique.
My favorite coffee shop is Philz Coffee (multiple locations). Their coffee is served just how I like it… STRONG.
