  • The Barrelhouse Flat

    Cocktail Bar / Lounge
    The Barrelhouse Flat - Cocktail Bar | Lounge in Chicago.
    May 5, 2013 Like Violet Hour, just a little more fun "The former Violet Hour bartender in charge of the delicious cocktails at Barrelhouse Flat has my undying love and devotion. The menu is long and involved, but the bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly. I've spent a lot of time pestering the staff with questions and, bless them, they never appear annoyed. Try to do this when it's not too crowded, like on a weeknight or sometime before 9. The atmosphere is fun and trendy, and if the speakeasy thing is a gimmick, Barrelhouse does it with panache. The lounge upstairs is great for larger groups, especially on a weekend, although the wait can be long. Downstairs is generally more crowded and noisy but it's almost always possible to snag a booth. The food is excellent, I especially love the poutine or the daily popcorn for snacking. There is usually a short wait on weekend nights, but it's never been nearly long enough to put me off. Basically, if Violet Hour were a smidge more laid back, you'd get Barrelhouse Flat." hide
