This swell bar is the tipsy companion to Café Adelaide, and its good-time vibe seems poised to spill into the lobby of the adjoining Loews Hotel. A dash of adult fun massaged with heavy levels of quirkiness, it’s a snazzy spot for an after-work drink or pre- or post-convention tipple.

Cocktail names reflect the bar’s sense of fun: Wild Magnolia, Bitter Kitten, A Little Soused on the Prairie. Happy hour is from 3pm to 6pm daily. Depending on the crowd, the Swizzle Stick may stay open until 1am or 2am.
