After Jenny planned such a fun day in Chicago for us, I’d follow her pretty much anywhere in the city. So when we next met up I again allowed her to lead the way. I just didn’t expect it to be through an alley, down pitch-black stairs and into a subterranean room!
It was worth it however when we arrived at Three Dots and a Dash, an underground tropical tiki bar voted one of the World’s 50 Best Bars by Drinks International.
It’s easy to see why! The drinks at Three Dots and a Dash are anything but typical. They have fun flavors, fun types of alcohol, and fun presentations.
And if you order the drinks marked with a skull, you’ll be fun too!
Jenny and I started with the Chief Lapu Lapu, a blend of aged Demerara rum, dark Jamaican rum, passion fruit, lime and tangerine. It was quite the spectacle, and several people came over to ask us what we were drinking!
Because that massive bowl of alcohol wasn’t enough, we then ordered The Zombie with Jamaican and overproof rums, lime, grapefruit, cinnamon and pomegranate. This drink was a spectacle too!
By then the boys had arrived, so we ordered another round (when in
Rome a tiki hut in a basement, right?!)
Jenny and Greg both got Mai Tais with Martinique blanc agricole, aged Jamaican rum, dry Curacao, orgeat, lime and overproof rum.
Jason ordered the Strip and Go Naked (fabulous name) with Westbourne strength gin, passion fruit, lemon, tangerine and Kona Hanalei.
And I had the Crocodile Tuesday with Jamaican pot still banana, overproof rum, Saint Lucia pot still rum, orgeat, fernet menta and lime.
Even though we had dinner plans later that evening, at this point it was only about 4pm so we ordered some appetizers too! We had the Hanali Spring Rolls.
And ate several orders of the King Crab Rangoons. We couldn’t get enough of them!
I absolutely love Three Dots and a Dash. The drinks are fabulous, the food is good, and you feel like you’re on vacation without a care in the world (that may or may not be due to the strength of the alcohol)!
