Humuhumu’s description

Three Dots and a Dash is the creation of star bartender Paul McGee, in partnership with Lettuce Entertain You, a Chicago area restaurant group. The bar is named for the classic Don the Beachcomber drink, itself a WWII call for victory using the Morse code for "V." The focus at Three Dots and a Dash is on cocktails, but it also delivers on the special Polynesian Pop details we've come to expect... most notably on the beautifully detailed souvenir mugs. There is a small menu of food, including a flaming Pu-Pu Platter.
In November 2014, Paul McGee left Three Dots and a Dash, and in January 2015 opened Lost Lake

How to find it

The entrance is located on an alley around the back of the building, just off of Hubbard St.

just came back from Chicago and ended up at 3Dots twice, lucky me. 1st night was two of us and had a great conversation with bartender Eden, who turned me on to a few books and some different rums... 2nd night was with a group of 10 and they were super accommodating the group loved it... drinks, music, food, service was all really well done both nights... better than I remembered from my last visit a year or so ago

It took way too long to get a table past what we were told so we didn't end up dining but the staff was very friendly and the experience was top notch.
