Loved this place! We stopped by on our way back into Chicago and were in for the best surprised. The drinks were delicious, the staff incredibly kind, and the space is history with a modern twist. We will be coming back for sure! Make sure to get the Vanilla bean infused vodka—it’s so good.

We came here on a Thursday night for their trivia contest. This was our first time here. The place is an old well that dates back to the Capone era. This place is a distillery that makes their own liquor. Minimum food but what they have is excellent. The flatbreads are great. We had the artichoke ones and they are really, really good. Their drinks, with a lot of specialty drinks are amazing. The slushy drinks are highly recommended. Get one before they run out for the night. You can really taste the liquor in all their drinks. We had a great time here and would love to come back again.

The Restaurant is dripping with history all the way back to 1895. All the staff was very accommodating and more than willing to ensure you enjoyed your experience. While the menu is minuscule ( it is a distillery) the food was very good. The spirits were fine and plentiful. If you enjoy history and good service I suggest you give it a try.

This place is just plain cool. The building is the oldest brewery in Illinois. The way they have renovated and turned it into a distillery is amazing. The place has this super cool vintage vibe and yet new. The liquor they make is very good. The flatbread pizzas were awesome. They have managed to provide top notch food and drink while keeping the prices very good. They don't have any alcohol other than what they distill on site, with is actualy really cool. We got a cool little tour of the place with a short history of the building and got to go down to the well. Very spooky fun. Thursday's is trivia night, and it's free to play. The trivia was run very well and we had a blast.

We visited The Well with our friends this passed Friday night. The decor is very tasteful, reflecting the age of the building and the spirit of the place. Cocktails were fabulous and the service was amazing. We also had a flat bread that was truly delicious. I can not recommend this place enough!
