Lazy Bird is in the basement of The Hoxton hotel in the West Loop, and it’s the type of intimate mid-century lounge that might never have actually existed outside of a movie set. A beautiful marble bar serving updates on 52 classic cocktails anchors the room, but there are plenty of dark shadows to slink back into if you’re trying to stay incognito for whatever reason. Come here while you’re waiting for a table at Cabra upstairs.
