Hotspot: Renaissance Chicago Hotel Bar Novo

Not long ago, My friend Melissa and I attended Bar Novo’s one year anniversary party and the launch of Renaissance Hotel RLife LIVE series

Not long ago, My friend Melissa and I attended Bar Novo’s one year anniversary party and the launch of Renaissance Hotel RLife LIVE series, we had a great time. I’m  seriously in love with Bar Novo, maybe because it feels more like a lounge than a bar, but at any rate I love it. If you are not familiar with Bar Novo it’s a bar located in the Renaissance Hotel in Chicago.

My friend Melissa and I headed straight for the bar and we ordered a Strawberry Rhubarb  Collins

Absolutely one of the best cocktails I’ve had in Chicago!!

We then decided if the drinks were this good, we should definitely try the food so we ordered House-Made chips and “Trufallo” wings

The food was absolutely superb, I will have to make many visits back to try all the other tasty items on the menu!

Bar Novo will definitely be one of my new hangout spots whether it’s to meet up with friends or watch the game you will love it…

Still not convinced here is a little more information about the Renaissance Hotel and Bar Novo: “Located in the heart of downtown Chicago at State and Wacker, the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel is a premier Chicago hotel just steps away from the financial and theatre districts. The hotel features The Great Street Restaurant and Bar, a contemporary restaurant overlooking the Chicago River, a rejuvenation center offering indulgent spa treatments and state-of-the-art exercise equipment, and Bar Novo, a modern, intimate space with booths and communal seating.
