I love bourbon and I love a great tiki bar! With Three Dots and a Dash… I got both! Located back in an alley at 435 N Clark in Chicago, Three Dots and a Dash can be a little tricky to find. You’ll have to look down the alley to see tiki torches lighting the way. Once you get past the door guy, you’ll go down a dark stairwell into a “holding area” with a hostess. Once they find a seat, we got there early and sat at the bar, you’re brough into a world of kitschy tiki wonder. Their drink menu is more rum focused as you would guess but it’s awesome!

Tiki bars are the first think you think of when you want a bourbon drink and Chicago may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about tiki bars but hey… it works and it was an awesome time!
