A prime location makes this sophisticated hotel bar and lounge named for the Palmer House founder Potter Palmer a convenient spot for theater-goers and Loop professionals. Showy, glass-enclosed columns of white feathers flank the bar area, which is a few steps above the main seating area. Playing off Chicago's storied history, the feathers evoke the seductive dances of Sally Rand, the entertainer famous for performing in a nude body suit during the Century of Progress exposition in Chicago in 1933. Oversize black-and-white photos of Chicago influences such as Hugh Hefner, John Belushi and Walter Payton round out the decor. Look around as you linger over retro libations and craft cocktails, or order a round of chichi bar appetizers.
