COCKTAILS IN CHICAGO
Mixologist and bartender Jim Meehan was a veritable pioneer when he opened modern speakeasy PDT (Please Don’t Tell) in New York in 2007.
Now he’s arrived in Chicago, where he just launched Prairie School, a hip speakeasy in Fulton Market with a décor inspired by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with stained glass, wooden shelves and fieldstone. In addition to offbeat nibbles like fried cheese curds, Prairie School serves tasty artisan cocktails including Eve, made with gin and cider-based eau de vie, and Father-in-Law, a mix of oat whiskey, sherry and cream. Wright was born in 1867, exactly 150 years ago. This stylish new bar is a fitting tribute to his incredible legacy.
