The Flamingo Rum Club

Hours may not be accurate

Cuban Restaurant

River North is home to some of the swankiest dining options and drinking lounges in the city. The Flamingo Rum Club fits right in from its colorful, 1950s Havana-themed house on Wells. The rum lounge, while obviously known for its extensive selection of rums -- one of the largest collections in the country -- is also known for its Cuban-inspired menu and live entertainment, like Afro-Cuban jazz and burlesque shows from the cabaret stage. The exterior walls are vibrant with a flamingo mural, the interior walls are plastered with palm trees, and the staff are sporting pink tuxedos and floral, island-chic dresses. The Flamingo Rum Club is your Caribbean escape from the frigid streets of Chicago.
