Tonight the team behind Three Dots and a Dash debuts a new bar-within-a-bar concept called the Bamboo Room, where guests can sip cocktails mixed with rare and high-end rums. The 22-seat area offers a menu curated by beverage director Kevin Beary; expect simple, well-balanced beverages that are more refined than their Three Dots counterparts. A highlight of the menu is the daiquiri program, which allows patrons to select one of four house rum blends, which are mixed and poured tableside over hand-shaved ice.
“The Bamboo Room is an ode to rum and rhum agricoles that utilizes the cocktail techniques working behind the scenes at Three Dots and a Dash,” says Beary in a media release. “The menu is more refined and focused with a collection of carefully selected rum and tiki cocktails that you might not find at a traditional tiki bar.”
Reservations for the Bamboo Room are available via Chicago-based ticketing service Tock. Groups of two to four can book a table to order drinks from the a la carte menu, which requires a $20 deposit per person. Bar seating is available for groups of one to three, and guests are treated to an omakase-like experience where bartenders guide the experience with two or three cocktails ($35 and $50, respectively).
The Bamboo Room is open Thursday and Friday from 4pm to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 2pm to midnight. Take a look below to scope out some of the sophisticated creations you’ll find there.
