The Low Down


What to Drink: The Bomp Pop, a layered liquid cocktail, looks and tastes just like the rocket popsicles you remember from childhood.

When to Go: On Sundays from 10:30am to 4pm, brunch features complimentary copies of the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times, plus the New York Times and Washington Post.

When to Go: Monday night is wine night. Expect fun, unusual wines to be served with wine-friendly nibbles. The best part? All wine pours are 50 percent off.

The Extras: The party room on the second floor offers a full bar, pool table and cozy leather couches perfect for lounging. Party packages can accommodate 100 people and must be reserved in advance.

The Extras: For a more laid-back vibe, check out the upstairs lounge, which beckons with couches, custom-made pool tables and 50-inch plasma-screen TVs.

Where to Sit: The window nook with tan leather couches on the second floor seats 15-20 and has a view of the Wrigley Field scoreboard. Reserve the space in advance if you don't want to miss the stellar view.

What to Drink: Specialty "Rocktails" include fruity concoctions like the Bomb Pop (raspberry and lemon vodkas, blue Curacao, lemonade and grenadine) and the Rockit Root Beer (Stoli Vanil, Godiva white-chocolate liqueur and root beer).
