Chicago. Lost Lake tiki Bar awarded Best American Cocktail Bar of 2018
Lost Lake, a Tiki-style bar in Chicago, received the award for Best American Cocktail Bar in the Best American Cocktail Bar category at the 12th edition of Tales Of The Cocktail.
The Chicago bar evokes both the glamorous tropical escapism of Hollywood in the 1930s and the rugged nautical and island aesthetic of the world’s first tiki bar: the original Don’s Beachcomber Cafe. They specialize in exotic cocktails of original recipes coming in. Since opening in 2015 the bar has won numerous awards including Drinks International’s 51-100 list of World’s Best Bars (2015) and Imbibe magazine’s Cocktail Bar of the Year (2015).
After their victory, the bar team commented in a post on their social networks Facebook and Instagram:“We are a neighborhood bar owned, managed, and tended primarily by women, people of color, and queer folks. We have a passionate, dedicated staff and the actual best guests in the world — and together we create community every night over tropical cocktails.“
