Matchbox

Top choice bar in Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukrainian Village

Lawyers, artists and bums all squeeze in for retro cocktails. It’s as small as – you got it – a matchbox, with about 10 bar stools; everyone else stands against the back wall. Barkeeps make the drinks from scratch. Favorites include the pisco sour and the ginger gimlet, ladled from an amber vat of homemade ginger-infused vodka.
