1. The Vault 838 W Randolph, Chicago, IL 60607

Named for a second-floor bank safe that was so insanely heavy it proved too imposing to remove from the building (so the owners gave up and left it there), The Vault's a 65-seat cocktail lounge with zebra pillow-strewn chocolate-colored banquettes surrounding an off-kilter bar shaped like a horseshoe, which in a pinch can be painted purple to bring in the cereal-obsessed leprechaun crowd.
