Why locals love it?
Why not celebrate the end of prohibition or "the dry law" in the US by naming a bar in Estonia after that hallowed date a few score decades later? Admittedly, Chicago 1933 is more of a restaurant than a bar these days. Anyhoo.
Why you should visit it
These days the dry law may be nothing more than a vague shadow from the West's ignorant past, but we can certainly appreciate the iconic design aesthetic of the era. The bar is built around a giant copper-plated pot, with wooden whiskey vats still lining the ceiling. As for the music – live jazz and swing, anyone?
You might be interested to know that Chicago 1933 also has the biggest and the most comfortable cigar room in Tallinn.

If you feel like dressing up and having a go at the town, you can't miss Chicago. The atmosphere is great, it makes you feel like you've travelled back in time. The leather seats, the bar in the centre of the action, right next to the small stage and dancefloor. Come the end of the week there are live performances ranging from jazz to rockabilly and there is always room for dancing. A noteworthy fact about Chicago is the cigar room. The ambience is charming, being dimly lit and having soft jazz in the background, large sofas and waitresses in '30s attire. Nothing will make you feel more at home then being dressed in a nice evening suit, with a martini in one hand and a cigar in the other.
