I travel a lot to Chicago for business, and it is the highlight of my trip to go to Le Bar. The bartenders are awesome, the waitstaff is phenomnal, the atmoshpere, everything is outstanding here! Go late, Its much more enjoyable!!
The CitySearch reviewer must have come right when the place opened, because it's quite impressive how GOOD the service considering how popular and packed the place can be. Between the clocks/time atomosphere, the starlit ceiling, the friendly staff and the hip music, this is my preferred place to be in Chicago. The staff is personable and skilled. The management is visible and friendly. When I was there, the manager went out of her way to find us a seat when it became available despite the fact she was obvioulsy being pulled in six different directions. Last time I was there, they'd just introduced appetizers and the ones I had were great! The only problem: now there's no reason to leave!!!
I can not tell you enough about the experience of this place. The bartenders serve you right away and the people aound you are very attractive. No one is in a hurry and everyone ""slows down"". If you want a great place to unwind - this is it
