Bernard’s Bar inside Waldorf Astoria Chicago doesn’t offer entertainment in the traditional sense — you won’t find a pianist or a band playing music in the dark, intimate lounge. But you will find a clientele ranging from well-heeled locals to out-of-towners — the people watching here can be entertainment enough. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is located in the heart of the Gold Coast. Rush Street, just outside of the hotel, has more bars and restaurants than you can likely visit in a weeklong stay. The neighborhood butts up against River North, the city’s liveliest and most diverse nightlife area with jazz clubs, piano bars, hip clubs and loads of upscale sports bars.
