At Brad Bolt’s bare-knuckles Bar Deville, don’t expect to see rules of conduct hanging from the bathroom wall. Though this Chicago mixologist did spring from the wells of The Violet Hour, his concept is geared towards the everyman, cooks included, who are as likely to kick back with a Miller High Life or a Pabst Tall Boy as an expertly crafted cocktail. For one thing, he’s got a way with Jeppson’s Malort that will change your mind about the oft-misunderstood spirit. Bolt’s drink philosophy puts simplicity first, and he prefers to think of his place as a casual, unpretentious bar that also serves a solid mixed drink.
