Just in time for PrideFest,

the old Spin re opens as

Whiskey Trust

3206 N. Halsted

(Opens June 19th)

This summer, Lake View/Boystown  welcomes Whiskey Trust to the neighborhood, a tavern featuring their own rye and millet whiskey and small batch vodka, as well as small bites.

Whiskey Trust’s opening demonstrates that Chicago’s distilling culture continues to expand and gain popularity. The menu will offer a handful of creative dishes, many of which will incorporate the product.

Chef consultants, Max Robbins and Jake Verstegan (hailing from Purple Pig and Kai Zan, respectively), were brought on for the project.

“The food is here to honor the spirits first, not the other way around,” says Robbins. House favorites include a Virginia oyster served with a shot of Trust Whiskey and mignonette as well as a Pickled Beet Torchon that utilizes the vodka to provide a sharp, peppery taste.

Guests can expect a muted décor with distressed and reclaimed wood and leather in the main bar and elevated lounge. Art by Chicago graffiti artist, Mr. Brainwash, will dress the walls.

Chloe’s, a new 5,000 sq. ft. nightclub, will open in the former Spin space located in Boystown. The new high-energy dance club, set to open on June 19, will offer a lower level dance floor and intimate cocktail lounge on the second. Chloe’s main attraction, a LED dropped 3D tube system with 180 lit tubes, is the only lighting system of it’s kind in the United States. The music, a staple to any nightclub, is managed by Chicago’s own CrossFader Kings. Chloe’s will offer dancers a funky mix of future-house beats mixed with new-disco as well as modern remixes of 80’s and 90’s hits.
