The California Clipper
1002 N. California Ave., Chicago
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.
