The Owl, Joy District, and Oyster Bah 5/5/17

It's going to be another fun week(end) in Chicago!  Here are some great spots to hit up whether you're looking for a live music scene, sushi, or some more Cinco De Mayo fun!  Be sure to listen to my entire 101-WKQX radio segment by clicking HERE!

The Owl

The Owl is that late night bar you crave when you just want to let loose, and have an amazing and non-pretentious time.  It's quirky, it's a blast, and it was Logan Square before Logan Square was the coolest neighborhood in town.  I mean, they have an indoor waterfall!  Need I say more?  Ok yes, I need say more.  Check out their latest concert series "Double Door Presents" !!!  Double Door Lives on everyone!  Their first concert is Monday, May 8 at 9 p.m. and features Dark Circle Records punk and indie artists including Luke Henry and Engine Summer. Members from the bands will also DJ between and after their live sets. Here's even more necessary info:

Joy District

What if River North had a venue that served incredible food, had a sushi menu, a night club, a lounge scene, and the swankiest roof top you could imagine???  Ah, only in our wildest dreams right??  NOPE!  It's real, guys.  Joy District is a go-to for a fun time no matter what your speed.  And the best part of all is that they recently started an all day Sushi happy hour on Wednesdays called #WineDownWednesda. They serve select sushi rolls for $5 as well as $5 select glasses of wine. Um, YES please!  They also have a daily happy hour promotion on M-F from 4:00-7:00pm with 1/2 off signature cocktails as well as $5 Don Julio 1942 shots. This is HUGE- not only is it one of my my favorite tequilas, but those shots are normally $35 each, so it's literally a steal.  Does life get any better than sushi and tequila?!

Oyster Bah


Not only does Oyster Bah have literally the best oysters in town because they fly them in fresh EVERY day, but they even have some Cinco De Mayo specials including $4 Micheladas!!  Here's more info on them from my Eat Travel Rock TV epsisode!
