Live pianist was incredible. Interesting mix of kind of sophisticated mid-20s and some older folks. Bar tenders are knowledgeable and interactive. Would highly recommend going with a small group of friends on a weekend or your second stop on your date. Only about 20-30 people max can fit in here which makes it intimately fun.
When I lived in Chicago I frequented this place many times. Even on there slow nights it is a pretty raucous experience. The piano player Kevan Eftekhari is a must see talent that embodies the sound of Chicago. They make a good Gin and Tonic and the bartenders are lively folk. Must visit if you are in the area.
