The dark and mysterious bar is full of mystery and tinctures. The drink menu is large and very interesting. Lovely drinks made from scratch. There is nice outdoor seating but sitting at the bar is really fun. The craft bartenders are fun to watch as well as looking at all the things behind the bar; roots, herbs, tinctures and who... More

The best drinks around! The staff was so friendly and accommodating! They knew what to recommend based on a few ingredient hints and really took the time to get to know your tastes. The place was comfortable yet super sexy! Dress up or dress down. Dimly lit with candles, crowded with cool people! A delight little find!

The cocktails here are divine, the snacks tasty and the atmosphere is cosy and trendy. Perfect for a drink before or after the theater or just to meet friends!

Went here with a few friends for a burlesque show. When we arrived it was pretty slow, the server was very attentive and nice. He recommended some fantastic cocktails and tapas for us. The portions were small for the price but the food was fantastic. Unfortunately, as it got busier the server began to ignore my friends and I as... More

We had a lovely time at the Keefer Bar--went early for a drink before dinner. The bar tender, Naveen, was very knowledgeable and listened to what we wanted. He produced cocktails that were inventive and delicious. I thought the mescal Last Word was especially good--lots of layers that came together really well. The bar filled up as we were there... More

A wonderful experience! Thank you to Amanda who was the best server we can can remember in recent years! Delicious food (1/2 price before 8:00 PM) Beautiful cocktails! Very unusual concoctions and Amanda steered us in the right direction every time. So pleased we chose this venue for our get together. A+

The outdoor patio is a great summer stop. Amazed me how fast the service was given how packed it was. And the grazing food is fantastic selection of skewers and the duck tacos were delish!

I'm not an expert in mixology, but I have had lots of craft cocktails in many different cities, including all the top spots in Chicago -- and The Keefer beats them all. We ordered four craft cocktails and they were all fantastic, but one of my cocktails was THE BEST COCKTAIL I'VE HAD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I can't stop... More

Closed this place during a pub crawl. Fantastic setting. We got the patio seat with an outdoor firepit. It must have been a great time, because I don't remember much. Except the server was friendly and the shooters were great.

Just visited on a Friday night and had no trouble getting a table for 2 at 10pm. I loved the dark, intimate atmosphere in this cozy (i.e. long and narrow) place. The drinks were fun and I would come back and explore the cocktail menu, but I wouldn't bother with food. The duck sliders were just meat, a slice of... More
