The Flamingo Rum Club

The Flamingo Rum Club

Appears in 3 Collections

Within River North’s bottle-service-dominated nightlife spectrum, The Flamingo Rum Club falls somewhere between casual and classy. Impossible to miss thanks to its traffic-stopping mural, this boxy bar isn’t conducive to quiet canoodling. On the contrary, spotlights illuminate the open floor plan every hour or so as a train of burlesque and cabaret performers shake and shimmy their way through the crowd. True to the name, rum is the focus here, though there’s a large-format vodka cocktail on the menu, because River North.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: ​The Catch a Fire, if only because it arrives aglow. And yes, the service staff will give you time to snap a photo before extinguishing it.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​Once word spreads, book a table in advance of showing up. Book after 9 p.m. to catch the show, which goes on a little after the hour every hour until closing.
