People are always asking me what is the coolest bar I went to in Chicago last week. It was Longman & Eagle, by a country mile, which also had the coolest bedroom and made the best brunch, also by country miles. It has a Michelin star. Longman & Eagle is one of those places which everything could be arch or annoying done one tiny unit differently, but in which they've got it right.
It serves dozens of whiskeys, and presumably whiskies, and delicious cocktails, and it has a hundred artisanal beers. It also serves cider. What cider? Strongbow. In a can.
