The tantrum from last year is gone. The new management have successfully made this place the worst lounge in south loop. I asked if there was a food menu, and the manager(not the bartender) gave me a rude answer and a sarcastic look as if I was stupid. I then paid for my ""Completely overpriced martini,"" which I felt I could make a better martini than their bartender. Skip this place. There are so many better bar/lounges with a friendlier atmosphere.

I was excited when this place first opened in my neighborhood (South Loop) because there aren't many trendy nightlife options around there, and I was a bit dissapointed when Tantrum wasn't the crazy nightlife scene I had envisioned it to be. However, I came to like how the place ended up being. It's a small cozy little place to grab a drink before you're headed somewhere or after you've come from someplace. Definitely don't expect this place to be a seen-and-be-seen spot- I guess that was never their intention.
Basically, Tantrum still retains a hip atmosphere without trying too hard. It's actually a nice, chill alternative to the sweaty, over-crowded bump n'grind lounges and clubs that most places turn out to be. I'm not a huge martini fan, but I tried a couple and they're pretty good.

Tantrum is a good choice when heading out for a night in Chicago.
The location can be a bit dicey. But plenty of street parking, no cover and strong drinks make this place a good choice. You can hit Tantrum for a few drinks before heading out to the clubs and more expensive places.

More than once I saw the bartender stop in the middle of making a drink and answer his cell phone. I even saw this once while he was in the middle of shaking a martini... isnt going to a bar, about getting good service? I was disappointed, otherwise, a great space and good drinks...
