Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago’s buzzing bars make it a great spot to grab some cocktails — the signature drinks in particular. In the alfresco Terrace at Trump or Sixteen’s small bar, the best tipple is the tasty Exotic Ginger, mixed with Belvedere, St-Germain, Cointreau, muddled ginger, white cranberry juice and fresh lime. Ginger can be overwhelming, but the cocktail is nicely balanced. And aside from the flavor, it gets an added tropical touch with a purple orchid garnishing the sugar-rimmed martini glass.
The signature drink in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel’s mezzanine-level Rebar is a champagne cocktail, since the bar’s wine list is heavy on bubbly and sparling wines. The Pink Affair is a fruity and bubbly delight with Veuve Clicquot rosé champagne, St-Germain and fresh blueberries and other berries floating about. It comes with two black straws and a purple orchid. The popular rose-hued cocktail is a nice pop of color in the dimly lit nighttime space.
Every drink on the Rebar menu is a Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago specialty. Changing seasonally, these cocktails mix traditional ingredients with inspired additions. One popular cocktail is the Reveev martini: Veev acai shaken with fresh blackberries and finished with champagne. The juices used in this drink, and any cocktail utilizing juice, are all freshly made every day in the Rebar liquid kitchen. Their extensive sake list is a wonderful option as well. Full of incredible unique and unusual sakes, our servers can guide you to the perfect one.
Absolutely not to be missed in Rebar are the seasonal punchbowls. Punchbowls have been enjoying a renaissance in Chicago but the best ones in the city are found at Rebar, on the hotel’s mezzanine level. One favorite for summer is the Flor Blanco. A white sangria creation accented by the elderflower of St. Germain, Grey Goose vodka and mixed with a bouquet of fresh and fragrant fruits. A large beautiful punch bowl is the perfect way to gather friends at the end of a long week and toast to a great weekend!
