Opened in December of 2015, The Sixth is an award-winning cocktail bar from Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller and The Fifty/50 Group, 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.
The 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.
