Welcome to Willy Wonka's cocktail factory! The Fifty/50 Group has transformed the formerly clubby rooftop bar at the Dana Hotel into a boozy wonderland, making this the most ambitious spot for mixed drinks in Chicago since The Aviary opened in 2011.
There's a lot of FOMO going on: expect lots of people taking photos of these whimsical drinks. But behind all the bells and whistles, the flavors are surprisingly sophisticated too.
Colorful and creative large format cocktails served in beautiful custom-blown glass.
If you like cocktails on the sweeter side, or marshmallows and cotton candy as a drink garnish.
