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.
