Save the Matchbox - Chicago
Organized by: Christina Lucas
Coined Chicago's most intimate bar by Vogue Magazine, at 460 sf this off-beat neighborhood bar could easily be the smallest tavern in Chicago. An eclectic mix of characters frequent this very narrow bar (Google matchbox Chicago for images). Known for premium, hand-shaken cocktails from the gimlet with fresh lime juice to the perfect Manhattan. Standing at the corners of Chicago, Ogden, and Milwaukee Avenues for over 75 years, "The Box" had witnessed much of Chicago's history.
