The Coq d’Or (French for Golden Cockerel or "young rooster") has been voted one of Chicago's Best Restaurants & Lounges for its historical significance. The legendary bar opened to a line of thirsty patrons after the repeal of Prohibition, on December 6, 1933 being the second outlet to obtain a liquor license and remains a fixture in Chicago today. There are eight decades of nostalgia worth tasting from the classic cocktails to the comfort food including the best Bookbinder Red Snapper Soup in the city and an extensive whiskey list including a new addition, a Rye Whiskey locally blended and distilled in Evanston, Illinois, by FEW Spirits in conjunction with The Drake Hotel. Whether you're a local neighbor, an international traveler, or visiting business executive, the Coq d'Or empowers you to get the job done and be entertained all together. Open daily with live week-end entertainment.
