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 light, romantic night. Michelin starred chef Brian Fisher promises globally inspired cuisine and creative cocktails in the lounge: try short rib banh mi; chicken bao; mushroom won tons; or charcuterie and cheese. Order a house cocktail like Four Lovers or the I Don't Want No Shrubs; or a sizeable, sharable Spicoli (Plantation Three Stars Rum, Jager, Coconut Thai Banana, Vanilla, Pineapple) may get things rolling for the fast times. You get to 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.
