room 13


Room 13 is the Old Chicago Inn's very own Prohibition era-inspired speakeasy. Our resident bartender serves up classic cocktails, using recipes and ingredients that hearken from the Jazz Age and earlier. While pouring libations made with the finest ingredients, the bartender also shares knowledge of the history of the cocktail, often with cultural anecdotes that bring the Prohibition era to life.

Room 13 is accessible to guests of the Old Chicago Inn, as well as Room 13 members. Reservations are required.

Proper dress is required. Guests are asked to follow a cocktail and business casual model.  Gentlemen are asked to wear some sort of collar (jacket, button-up, etc.); nice denim is acceptable (no wear and tear); no athletic wear.

When booking a stay at the Old Chicago Inn, guests may also choose to add a "Cocktail Flight” to their stay. This package features four samplings of different cocktails from the menu, representative of the era, crafted for you while the bartender offers historical descriptions of the drinks as well as insight in to the mixing methods. A tray of nuts, dried apricots and olives is included. Package is $60 for two people, applied to the final bar tab.

Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 5 PM - 1 AM
