Central Park Bar
Where to Grab a Drink in Chicago Right Now
The folks behind AliveOne, Easy Bar, The Owl, and Estelle’s, (AKA Four Entertainment Group), have done it again with this spanking new neighborhood bar near the corner of Central Park and Milwaukee. The years-in-the-making concept brings an old-school flavor to the 1940s-era building with an 80-year-old wooden bar and vinyl green barstools along with a backyard-styled outdoor space. And yes, you can still get 4EG’s famous half-priced happy hour specials every weekday—easily one of the best deals in the city. As an added bonus—or liability, depending on how you look at it—Jello Shots and Malort + Old Style combos are always on hand.
