After going to Coq d?Or last weekend on a girls? getaway with my best friend I made a mental note: If reviews of a place are from several years ago take them with a grain of salt! I don?t know Chicago well and don?t know anyone who lives in the area so CitySearch was what I relied on in choosing a jazz bar. Big mistake! Usually CitySearch reviews are quite reliable and I am sure the ones below were also written with honesty and good intentions, which leaves the only explanation that this place must have changed ownership and/or management. Coq D?Or is quite an ordinary bar with very low ceilings and unfriendly staff. We dealt with two waiters during our brief stay neither of whom was capable of smiling. I had a French martini ($12.50) that had no alcohol in it. I think they add something bitter to it to give the false taste of alcohol because I am a light-weight and drink rarely; and after downing the whole glass I didn?t even get a buzz. I am very disappointed with this place and would not recommend it to anyone. I am giving two stars only because I save one star to a place where apple martini has a razor in it.
