Chicago has so many fabulous bars and, today, we meet two General Managers working for two of those!
First up is Abe Vucekovich of Wicker Park’s The Violet Hour – the mothership of Chicago’s cocktail scene and a James Beard Foundation award-winner for Best Bar Program.
Then we head over to the Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago to sit down with newly arrived, über chic Z Bar at the Peninsula Hotel, helmed by Vlad Novikov. Both bars are creating cocktails that are on the top of their game. Join us to see how they are knocking it out of the park in Chicago-style!
Who’s on tap next:
We are joined by someone whose family that has been distilling gin since 1762 and now his modern gin is winning award after award.
