The Sixth is an unassuming bar with great cocktails. It’s located just east of the Lincoln Square neighborhood, so there is plenty in walking distance. The Sixth itself is located on a part of Lawrence Avenue which is busy with cars and not pedestrians, so The Sixth can be easy to miss.
It is next to Root’s Pizza (check out the article) so this one-two punch allows you to make this part of Lawrence Ave a fun night of dinner and cocktails. The Sixth’s cocktails are unique and strong which allows you to be adventurous but not afraid to take your time with your drink. The bartenders are friendly and willing to talk you through how your taste matches up with the menu. Their summer cocktail menu is creative and I would recommend ordering the Yankee Doodle: not only is it great tasting, it is also entertaining as it comes out with a sparkler.
The ambiance is great for a date or a night out with friends.
