YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD SPOT
Opened in December of 2015, The Sixth is an award-winning cocktail bar from the cocktail team of the Fifty/50 Restaurant group. We are located in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood. A hip, modern hangout, we feature creative craft cocktails made with specialty ice served in an upscale yet approachable environment.
Our name is derived from the early history of distillation in America. At one time in our nation’s history, whiskey production was so common it was said that 1 in every 6 men were involved, whether distilling it, transporting the grain. or milling it.
We are also proud to be the sixth concept from The Fifty/50 Group, a leader in creating innovative, diverse restaurant and bar concepts.
As we constantly strive to pay attention to the city and world around us; our focus is on using seasonal ingredients, being resourceful and repurposing what we can, when we can. Drawing from the storied history of cocktails, we bow in respect to our past, and look to help move things forward.
With an interest in sustainability, Bar Manager Dylan Seo runs The Sixth with an open mind for what can be used differently, repurposed, and what he can do without. This, according to Seo, is a thorough working process that can lead to surprising solutions. His philosophy blends with that of The Sixth and The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group, and in turn is leading him to bring forth some of Chicago’s finest drinks.
