Niche Ink just announced Chicago and Wicker Park neighborhood as the #4 on their list of places for Millennials to live.
Just one more reason to stay in Wicker Park on your next visit to Chicago. Our tip for the day: The Bedford – a great lounge located in the safety deposit vault of a bank just 2 blocks from the Two Urns. Stop by for a late night drink, have a little supper, enjoy all Wicker Park has to offer.
For those unfamiliar, Opera Inter Alia offers a harmonious blend of opera and standard songs – and, as always, finishes strong with a sing-along.
This month they are trying out a new concept – Jukebox Opera – whereby the audience chooses selections from their “jukebox list” to be performed live!
Come and join the fun!
For those of you that know Blue Star’s “Cindy” – she will be performing!
NO COVER CHARGE – just order from our menu and enjoy the music.
RESERVATIONS are highly recommended as our opera nights typically sell out!
I always loved playing April Fool jokes on my mother, but now I do the reverse – the joke’s on me as Two Urns offers a great discount for the month of April.
Book any room on April 1st, 2014 for just $89 Sunday – Thursday or $99/night Friday/Saturdays for any length of stay during the month of April – valid for any number of nights, but no other discounts are available on this great rate. This is a one day wonder of a deal and it’s no joke. So help us welcome the warmer winds of April (they just gotta be better than March) this April Fool’s Day.
Although we have always planned dining here, we just never made it through the charming back alley entrance into this French bistro before today. Just the perfect amount of lighting for a great first date or romantic dinner we enjoyed the Beet salad the Boston Lobster Salad, Horseradish crusted Salmon was excellent and the Tenderloin was also very good. Wine was excellent and the service was superb, attentive and yet not intrusive, thorough and not stuffy. A big thumbs up for Cafe Absinthe in Wicker Park: just enter through the alley off Damen, just north of North Avenue – follow the green sprite. About $50/person with drink.
