That’s Vinyl

A Bar That Looks Like a Record Store

None 5 Photos Vinyl
It’s Friday. It’s beautiful outside. And you want a beer.

A perfectly reasonable desire.

But you’d also like to listen to “When Doves Cry” and eat a platter of shrimp tacos while you drink that beer.

Well, that’s a little more eccentric. But totally doable.

Because now there’s Vinyl, a River North party den with old-school records, Revolution beer and pulled-pork sliders, now open and ready for you to let loose after work.

You’ll get the drift when you walk in. There’s a used-record store’s worth of vintage Rolling Stones posters, old guitars and albums hanging on the wall, with a heavy emphasis on the ’80s: Jefferson Starship, Quiet Riot, etc. The melodic sounds in your ears: courtesy of Prince, Jay-Z, Pink Floyd and Hendrix.

You and an office mate can share a plate of sliders, tacos or buffalo chicken flatbreads at the main bar. Washing it all down: one of five Revolution beers or a nice cucumber vodka cocktail.

One more thing: if you take a seat in the dining room, you’ll see a 45 of “The Super Bowl Shuffle.”

Which is much, much better than hearing it.
