1. Rittergut Wine Bar & Social Club 10 S Wacker Dr, Chicago, IL 60606

Taken from the German word for "noble landholding" (done as a nod to the family land taken by the Nazis that the owner's still working to reclaim, hopefully not from Nazis), Rittergut's tucked away in a corner of the Mercantile Exchange that now boasts a 40-seat patio, deep burgundy walls interspersed with rows of vino, and a pair of brick private dining areas with a cave-like feel, also how Gollum passed time when he was bored.
