Happy Holidays from the Ray’s crew! We’re gearing up for a busy holiday break, with folks coming to stay from all over. Whether you’re looking for a New Year’s party spot, or a quiet Christmas hamlet to escape the family drama, Ray’s still has a few rooms available to further your holiday cheer. Speaking of cheer, the Bucktown neighborhood has a royal ton of bars and boutiques to either finish off, or if you’re like me and drastically unprepared for this gift season, jump-start your shopping and celebrations. These are all within walking distance of Ray’s, so put on your coat and get to adventuring!
For any and all cocktail/beer needs:
Jukebox, darts, $3 dollar drafts and two blocks from Ray’s. What more could ya need?
Hip lights, a unusually good looking person is usually spinning records. If you’re cool, or want to be, this is the bar for you.
Sports, ten-dollar PBR pitchers. So close to Ray’s you’ll only have to brave the winter for exactly three whole seconds.
Good coffee, better beer. I freakin’ love this bar.
For any and all eclectic gift needs:
Tarot cards, crystals, and shrunken heads, oh my! Half art gallery, half funky gift shop, worth a look just for a full-on weird experience.
Classic toys, whimsical vibes.
Looking for a mid-century modern couch that will make your apartment look straight out of Mad Men? Welp, here ya go. Really beautiful used and antique furniture.
