Randolph Street in West Loop is the hottest street in Chicago for lovers of food and booze. It’s really hard to go wrong at any of the bars and restaurants on this street, but I’m going to highlight one of my new favorites – Nosh and Booze.
Nosh and Booze is a pop up style bar and restaurant that serves American street food and craft cocktails. Their menu changes weekly, so don’t get too attached to a favorite drink or dish.
It’s hard to talk about my favorite drinks since the menu is changing, but they do consistently have ICEE drinks. It’s basically a frozen cocktail in the shape of a popsicle. A boozy take on a childhood classic.
The interior of Nosh and Booze is cool and eclectic. It has an industrial feel with exposed brick and piping as well as floor to ceiling graffiti. I never notice the background music at bars, but my boyfriend says they have one of the best playlists he’s heard (a lot of hip hop). They also take reservations and have seating for big groups.
I can’t comment on the food since I haven’t had it, but definitely try this place out if you’re looking for some creative cocktails in an industrial environment.
