Chit Chat Lounge & Hideaway is tucked below The Swill Inn. The casual speakeasy has monthly House and Hip Hop music parties with some of the city's best DJs. Have a "Stirred, Boozy and Confident" cocktail or if there's a mess of you, order a large-format punch bowl serving four-to-eight thirsty friends. A shortlist of suds and Champagne by the glass or bottle round out the drink menu. If you need to nosh and gain some equilibrium after that punch bowl, an abbreviated food menu from the Swill Inn upstairs can get you a Chicago style dog, spicy chicken sandwich, beefy Swill rolls, barbecue chicken pizza, jazzed up fries and cookies. Whereas a herd of trendy speakeasies try too hard to channel a bygone era with chandeliers, marble bars and special passwords, this spot thankfully feels more like a naughty drinking party in your landlord's hidden basement.
- Lounges: "Open Wednesday-Saturday at 5 pm, Chit Chat's entrance can be tricky to find. Look for the spray painted lips mural to point you in the right direction."
- Best for Lounges Because: If you go for secreted bars, the cozy Chit Chat Lounge & Hideaway is a casual hideaway with DJ's, snacks and well-poured punch bowls.
