Rose All Day - Wine Bars in Chicago Near Us

The Monarch
Webster Wine Bar's Most Dusty & Delicious
Here at Ray's Bucktown Bed & Breakfast you might catch us enjoying the occasional Mimosa after breakfast service is over, using the all important vitamin C in orange Juice as an excuse. But we also love our summertime Chicago companion - Rose (who knows how to put an accent on Blogger???) and all wine really.

Chicago has a reputation as a beer-drinking-brat-eating Midwestern Hub of all things hoppy and meaty... but here are some of our favorite places in bucktown and neighboring hoods to down a little pinot:

Red & White
Webster Wine Bar - technically now in Logan Square after relocation, but definitely walkable - this is probably the best place to chill out with a great selection of impecable wines, and a friendly atmosphere close to home here at Ray's. Our manager likes this place so much she follows them on instagram...did we mention they lead viticultural expeditions???? (Wine vacations. yes)

Red and White - not a bar but one of the best wine stores in the country, and right on Milwaukee Avenue about a 10 minute walk from the B&B.

The Monarch - not technically a wine bar but has a decent list and nice gastropub atmosphere. Also resides in the heart of the Wicker Park / Bucktown Neighborhood on North Avenue.

A Few More "Honorable Mentions" a bit further away:

Volo Restaurant & Wine Bar  (Roscoe Village)
Frasca Pizzeria & Wine Bar  (Roscoe Village)
D.O.C. Wine Bar  (Lincoln Park) - ask for Justin!
