The California Clipper
1002 N. California Ave., Chicago
(773) 384-2547

This restored 1940s speakeasy is known for its authentic retro interior, complete with Art Deco bar, padded booths and vintage posters. Dim lighting, red walls and classic cocktails set a swanky, relaxed mood. The Humboldt Park bar was taken over by new owners in November 2002 and they have begun to return this low-key hang back to its former glory. Live music Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 10 p.m. Expect everything from jazz to rockabilly to country to blues.
