Moneygun - Chicago
A sketchy corner tavern has been transformed into a craft cocktail crowd pleaser. Moneygun is the first West Loop venture from the 16" On Center group (Dusek's, Empty Bottle, Longman & Eagle, The Promontory), who've made a habit of bringing long-forgotten venues back to life.
With Moneygun, they've spruced up the tiny space while leaving the original interiors intact. Guests not lucky enough to get one of the darkly lit booths must squeeze in at the bar for beer, wine or cocktails--which is where they really shine.
More than 30 classic cocktails are listed on the menu, ranging from the Bee's Knees to the Last Word. There's also a curated menu of domestic and imported beer. Food comes from the adjacent Saint Lou's Assembly: snacks, sandwiches, lobster rolls and more.
