Music and romance are lifelong partners. That's why Dorian's, a new Chicago record shop/60's inspired music lounge hybrid, with sharable tiki cocktails and Asian inspired bar snacks, is a brilliant choice for a romantic night. Michelin starred chef Brian Fisher and John Hess (Beverage Director, previously of Aviary) promise globally inspired cuisine and creative cocktails in the lounge: try short rib banh mi; chicken bao; mushroom won tons; caviar; charcuterie and cheese. Order a house cocktail like Fruity Loops or a sizeable, sharable Cookie Monster (bourbon, coconut, Amaretto and bitters) or a Stormy Daniels may get things rolling. You get to the the intimate setting through the record shop which stocks hand-picked selections from personal collections, online record marketplace, and local partners like Chicago label International Anthem. The record shop features over 600 records equipped with a listening booth with turntables and headphones.

- Romantic Things to Do: "Stop in for happy hour specials, dinner and late night food service, Wednesday through Sundays."
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Couples can break the ice rifling through vinyl in the record shop, then share a big, boozy drink and delicious bites.
