Nara Lounge

This West Loop Korean lounge epitomizes the meaning of "hidden gem," with a blink-and-you'll-miss-it entrance next to Meiji, which shares the same owners. The upscale vibe attracts a mixed crowd that comes for the pop music, comfort eats such as kimchi and bottles of soju, a traditional Korean spirit. Bottles of American liquor can be pricey, but they come with a private table and friendly, welcoming service. Call ahead, as the lounge is occasionally closed for private parties.
