How would you like to take a trip to Hawaii for the price of a tank of gas to Chicago?

Imagine a tiki bar in a retro Polynesian-island setting, with rum infused cocktails that are dangerously too easy to drink; everyone is decked out in leis and and the luau music makes you feel like you've been transported to your own tropical paradise in the middle of the city. Yes, I said city.

That's because this slice of the Hawaiian tropics can be found just down the road in Chicago; it's called...Three Dots and a Dash. Ever heard of it?

According to USA Today, it's the most Instagrammed restaurant in Illinois. Known for it's "eccentric tiki cocktails", Three Dots and a Dash has been described as "a really fun and unique spot in Chicago.  Finding it can be a bit of an adventure as you have to walk down the alley to the entrance, but once you're inside a different sort of adventure begins."

Just take a look.

If trying new things and seeing new places in on your list of things to do in 2017, add this place to your list; if you don't mind drinks that are a little pricey or waiting for a table, then this is the perfect place for any special occasion or just because.
