Jonathan O'Brien/Elixir

Expect a wait for a weekend seat at tiny Boystown craft cocktail spot Elixir thanks to the boozy concoctions from Jonathan, 30. The Lakeview resident was previously behind the bar at XO and Halsted's and now balances his time between bartending and managing at Elixir¿s neighboring club, Hydrate. Catch him: Thursday-Sunday nights at Elixir, 3452 N. Halsted St. Signature drink: Keep things dark with Jon¿s Bourbon Shrub ($11) with whiskey, homemade shrub, lemon, Earl Grey tea and rosemary.
