Brando’s Speakeasy
Watch out Chicago, the speakeasies are a-coming


  Brando's Speakeasy, the quaint downtown establishment, boasts an intimate lounge with an unyielding supply of dancing, drinking, and karaoke. The doors open at 10:00am daily and don’t close until 2:00am (3am on Saturdays). Between those hours, the friendly staff tentatively welcomes patrons of every background into their warm, cozy, and dim atmosphere. The bar is the perfect setting for reunions, a girls' night out, or, if you're brave, you can finally live those fantasies of singing "Don't Stop Believing" outside the shower.

One of Brando’s most notable attractions is their raised platform and well-tuned karaoke machine at the head of the speakeasy. The machine is plum-loaded with 250,000 songs: lyrics and music loaded for anything from 1960’s ballads to present day hits. When you decide to take a seat, the MC/DJ plays a rotation of dance-inducing music and nod-worthy soundtracks.

Drink specials are their thing, retailing $1 lemon drop shots on Friday and $1 Jolly Rancher shots on Wednesday. Every day, they offer a variety of signature martinis for only $5. If you're feeling peckish, they also offer cheap pizza if you're hungry.

Though small, you'll love the lax crowd, and fun vibe that this hidden gem has to offer. It'll be all you talk about.
