violet hour, in the wicker park/bucktown area of chicago is one of the best bars i have been to in america. mainly because it does not look like a bar and you can have a nice conversation there. the drinks are innovative to say the least. from outside, it looks like a building with a lot of graffiti on the (outer) walls. feels like inside you would find skin heads. well, you do. after all, i have no hair. gravity. inside, it is a very elegant place like some of the better bars in amsterdam or tokyo. labor intensive drinks, and munchies like fried reese peanut butters.
