The Library Opens Tonight Below Gilt Bar

By Sarah Freeman
First it was going to be a ramen joint, then it would remain the dark cocktail cave called Curio, but finally the fate of the space below Gilt Bar has been determined. It now is called The Library, and it's an intimate space with red velvet booths and dark wood tables. As the name suggests, it has a lot of books of the leather-bound, gold-lettered, antique variety. Brendan Sodikoff and his team have been scouring the globe to create the impressive collection. Unlike Curio, it serves more than craft cocktails. It also will have food - the same classic fare served upstairs. Cozy would be an understatement to describe the candlelit space, but we know by now that the guy behind Au Cheval and Bavette’s has a way with mood lighting. The Library opens to the public tonight and its hours are as follows.

Wednesdays and Thursdays
Food: 6 to 11 PM
Drinks: 6 to 11:30 PM

Fridays and Saturdays
Food: 6 PM to Midnight
Drinks: 6 PM to 12:30 AM

230 W. Kinzie St.; 312-464-9544
