Lush Halsted Goes Legit, Becomes a Wine Bar

The Lush mini-empire of liquor stores has always been at the top of our list for go-to retail places that we wish we could just hang out at all day super-fun staff, great atmosphere, and of course all those pretty, pretty bottles and now that Lush Halsted (1257 S. Halsted, 312 738 1900) has landed a tavern license, we're one step closer. They've set up a "small, curatorial" selection of wines by the glass, are putting in a beer draft that will change regularly, and if nothing on offer is to your liking the Lushies are more than happy for you to choose any bottle from the shelf, pull up a stool, and relax for a while.
