The Connery: At BeviAmo Wine Bar, a cozy and romantic nightspot in University Village, everything from the plush sofas to the eclectic mix of music feels intimate and intriguing in equal measure.
The bar is known for serving a selection of 40 wines by the glass, but BeviAmo's craft cocktail list is another gem not to be ignored. For a classy drink to stir the senses, try the $10 Connery: a surprisingly smooth mixture of 12-year-old Belveni Scotch, ginger beer, biscotti liquor, blood orange bitters and a splash of soda, served on the rocks. 1358 W. Taylor St., 312-455-8255, beviamowinebarchicago.com.
