This River North spot is themey - it’s a tiki bar serving tropical cocktails in mugs shaped like pineapples, conch shells, and mermaids (among other things). You can also get island-style dishes like coconut shrimp and pork skewers. It feels like a beach party, and is a great place to go with friends on a night when you want to forget you live in a city that has winter for six months of the year.
