Tantrum is sophisticated cocktail lounge in the South Loop: A kaleidoscope-design glass door under a copper awning leads to an L-shaped room with antique fixtures and plush chairs created by furniture designer Francois Frossard. Fans of the place say they keep coming back for the A+ chocolate martini and the eclectic jukebox with songs ranging from Van Morrison to Morphine. Besides the good libations and tunes, we think it's one of the most romantic spots downtown -- check out the very secluded booths in the back. Martinis are the main event here, but the mahogany bar also is stocked with imported beers, scotches and wines.
