WHY HERE: In true punk rock style, this newcomer to Chicago’s nightclub district makes no apologies for its ragtag shortlist of cocktails. There’s a standard Daiquiri but also a Black Manhattan and Oaxacan Old Fashioned. Meanwhile, most of the surrounding bars and clubstaurants rely on bottle service to pay the bills.
WHY NOW: It already has good food, thanks to a favorite local chef. And Good Measure has the potential to be a good bar, too, if given the chance in this otherwise vodka-thirsty ’hood.
