No signage, you won't even know if you're in the right spot until inside. We had to wait to enter. There is no standing room, if there are no seats available you will have to wait until others leave. Nice menu of drinks and small eats. Overall a cool intimate spot.

My wife and I had been wanting to visit The Violet Hour for many years but had never made it there until this past week when visiting family in Chicago. We loved it! After lining up just before the door opened at 6:00pm, we were seated in candlelight in two comfy chairs facing each other along with others nearby us. The cocktail menu and food menu is very extensive, and the two drinks we ordered were fantastic! Our server was very friendly and took great care of us. I'd highly recommend if in the area - we'd definitely go again. What a great place to relax and enjoy a drink!

We got right in late on a Sunday night and enjoyed a couple of creative cocktails. The service was amazing and attentive. The atmosphere was cool: dark and private. Loved the outdoor mural.

We had to wait about 35 minutes to get in but its a nice relaxing atmosphere. Sat at the bar, got great service. Bartender made signature cocktails that were great with our appetizers.
