Wine Wednesday: My Chicago Wine Bar Faves

It’s #WineWednesday ladies and you know what that means: happy hour laughs, truffle fries, and a little mid-week de-stressing. Whether it’s to vent about your never-ending to do list at work or your kid told you he hated you for the first time, sometimes wine just has to be the answer. But there’s no fun in drinking wine alone (well, not always). Grab your friends and head to one of these coveted wine bars for a little girl time!

Enolo Wine Cafe

450 N. Clark St. | (312) 477-7674

One of River North’s best keep secrets, Enolo Wine Cafe is the perfect after work spot. The intimate space offers delicious American-Mediterranean infused appetizers and a happy hour deal too good to pass up.


Purple Pig 

500 N. Michigan Ave. | (312) 464-1744

This late night mezze style hot spot is one of my favorite places in the city. Such a lively and fun atmosphere – imagine Biggie + Tupac playing in the background! Awesome menu items and even better wine list.



1023 W. Lake St. | (312) 243-9770

Tucked underneath the train tracks in the vibrant West Loop, Vera Wine Bar and Cafe is the perfect spot for date night and drinks with the girls! The intimate, cozy, and welcoming atmosphere makes every visit enjoyable. Munch on Spanish inspired cuisine and thoughtfully curated wine list!


Boarding House 

720 N. Wells St. | (312) 280-0720

A gorgeous atmosphere, Boarding House is a sophisticated and trendy choice for wine night. The rustic, yet cool ambiance offers a unique dining experience with delicious American food and delightful wine!
