Arbella - Chicago
The clubby little sister to Tanta, Arbella is two doors down from the celebrated Peruvian-inspired restaurant. Nightly, it features popular local deejays, who spin deep house and Latin beats as guests sip on exotic craft cocktails.
The standout cocktail lounge is a popular stopover for diners at Tanta, who are likely to indulge and appreciate the carefully curated drink menu. It is divvied into categories by region, including Europe, the Caribbean, the United States and Asia.
Highlights of the menu range from large-format punches to a variety of seasonal elixirs. For those wanting small bites, there are plenty. The food menu plays off the globally inspired cocktails, with offerings like short rib bao, Korean fried chicken and Ahi poke.
