3160-Chicago's Piano & CabaretLake View | Website
This intimate jazz and piano bar in Lakeview epitomizes the quintessential cabaret. 3160, a multi-level venue, showcases cover-free performances of locally and nationally renowned talents. An elongated bar, dimly-lit with antique lanterns, occupies the golden-hued main floor. Several quaint cocktail tables and chairs fill the upper level, where a baby grand piano, the primary focal point of entertainment, remains nestled in the far corner. Seating on the upper level requires the standard two-drink minimum; however, unlike most cabarets, this minimum includes either alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. Complete with theatrical lighting, four disco balls and a backdrop of velvet curtains, a small enclave encased within the side wall periodically serves as a second stage. The masculine aura of the downstairs space features a dark brown leather furnishings.
