Located in the sleek, luxurious James Hotel, this anchor to the south end of Rush Street provides an intimate alternative to the typical nightlife options. J Bar offers deconstructed cocktails like a Ketel One martini with a vermouth and olive lollipop and the signature James, made with Stoli Raz, elderflower and lime juice, served in a martini glass coated in a hard, raspberry candy shell. Modern design elements, low-slung lounge seating, candlelit cocktail tables and plasma screens with video art installations give guests and nightlife scenesters something to talk about.
