The lounge above Black Bull in Wicker Park serves Prohibition Era cocktails made with small batch ingredients. The space is decorated with plush velvet couches and candlelit cocktail tables. The decor and the menu are inspired by a time during Prohibition when American bartenders moved to Europe and developed classic cocktails such as the French 75 and bloody mary. There's also a stage at Bordel, where, depending on which night you visit, you might see a flamenco dancer clinking her castanets, a jazz pianist sitting down at the keys or a burlesque performer stepping into the spotlight.
