HOLLYWOOD, CHICAGO-STYLE

Chicago’s hottest new bar is the Kit Kat Lounge and Supper Club (3700 N. Halsted St.; 773-525-1111). The decor evokes Old Hollywood glamour — white sofas, stone-topped tables on chrome legs, and circular mirrors on the brick walls — and entertainment includes Hollywood look-alikes performing cabaret-style Wednesday through Sunday. The namesake cocktail and No. 1 seller among 25 listed under “Martinis to Go” is the Kit Kat, which takes on a green glow from the bar’s lighting. Its tropical flavor complements the Latin-influenced menu, which includes the Havana salad and Big Blonde pizza.
