The Chicago Traveler

Fat Cat

by User ImageMatt B on November 28th, 2007

Chicago is (in)famous for its '30s and '40s notoriety. Prohibition brought out 'celebrities' like Al Capone and Bugs Moran. Now you too can step back in time and feel like a big wig at Fat Cat.

Fat Cat Just one block south of Thai Pastry, you can slip into one of the wrap-around leather booths and take in the atmosphere: an elaborate Art Deco interior, dark wooden floors, and soft red-painted ceilings. Old photos of the Uptown neighborhood decorate the walls. As far as drinks go, there are plenty of classic cocktails available along with creative libations, like the Chocolate Peanut Butter Martini. If you're curious about one of the beers on tap, ask for a sample, and you'll receive a few sips via shot glass. The kitchen puts out comforting dishes like crispy mac & cheese morsels, griddled sandwiches, and a daily casserole special.

So grab your fedora and a Manhattan, and soon you'll be feeling Untouchable.
