Mordecai, a favorite neighborhood Wrigleyville bar & restaurant, is located inside Hotel Zachary and directly across from Wrigley Field.

Their menu features a blend of traditional American classics and reimagined favorites, with a particular focus by Chef Matthias Merges on sourcing fresh, local ingredients.

The seasonal bar menu offers something for everyone, from classic cocktails, to local beer and some of Mordecai’s favorite wines. In addition to their bar menu, they have a back bar featuring one of the country’s most interesting collections of vintage and rare spirits, with a focus on rare bourbon.

Check them out on this year’s Best Bourbon Bar’s list.

The Kentucky Stinger comes to us from Corban Kell of Mordecai. A Kentucky-twist on a pre-prohibition classic and the perfect sip for the weekend.
