Three Dots And A Dash
435 N. Clark St.
Chicago, IL. 60654
Located on the Near North Side of Chicago, Three Dots and a Dash is an island paradise smack dab in the middle of a big ole metropolitan city. Leave the lights and sounds of the city behind as you reach the entrance through the alley between Hubbard and Illinois Streets, and experience a modern take on a classic tiki bar. While sampling food items like the Big Kahuna Burges and Lanai Luau Chips it’s easy to get lost in the selection of cocktails, but the one that’s a must-try is their special Banana Daiquiri with a seductive blend of rum, lime, coconut and banana. Open nightly for dinner until the wee hours of the morning, Three Dots and a Dash provides a vacation without ever leaving Chicago.
