Top 10 Tequila Bars in Chicago

Chicago isn’t playing around when it comes to diversity in its alcohol scene. Social circles often gather around drinking, going to bars, restaurants, parties, and events that you can discover in Chicago.

You might have your own favorite drinking spots, but it always helps to try out something new. There are plenty of options, offering not only the usual beer and fine spirits but also fancy tequilas and margaritas.

Drinking never goes out of style in Chicago. Even during Prohibition, thousands of speakeasies were supported by the city. This ever-growing love for alcohol and its social impact has continued to spread in modern times. 

More and more establishments have become open to a variety of drinks and concoctions that tickle the fancy of everyone. You can say that booze and Chicago have a special relationship of their own.
