Worst Martini bar in South Loop PT2 5/15/2009

The tantrum from last year is gone. The new management have successfully made this place the worst lounge in south loop. I asked if there was a food menu, and the manager(not the bartender) gave me a rude answer and a sarcastic look as if I was stupid. I then paid for my "Completely overpriced martini," which I felt I could make a better martini than their bartender. Skip this place. There are so many better bar/lounges with a friendlier atmosphere. Cons: horrible management, overpriced drinks, ugly decor more

Worst Martini Lounge in the South Loop 3/12/2008

The bartenders are horrible, drinks are overpriced, and seems the management and the staff a few years back that made this place rock are gone... What a waste more

Very Chill 4/11/2007

I was excited when this place first opened in my neighborhood (South Loop) because there aren't many trendy nightlife options around there, and I was a bit dissapointed when Tantrum wasn't the crazy nightlife scene I had envisioned it to be. However, I came to like how the place ended up being. It's a small cozy little place to grab a drink before you're headed somewhere or after you've come from someplace. Definitely don't expect this place to be a seen-and-be-seen spot- I guess that was never their intention. Basically, Tantrum still retains a hip atmosphere without trying too hard. It's actually a nice, chill alternative to the sweaty, over-crowded bump n'grind lounges and clubs that most places turn out to be. I'm not a huge martini fan, but I tried a couple and they're pretty good. Pros: Lounge-like, laidback atmosphere Cons: Not a lot of people more

Under new management 2/11/2006

Under new management - socially intolerant and unable to equitably resolve minor conflicts. Will never return. Too bad too... this used to be one of my favorite martini bars in the south loop more

Fantastic place to sit and have a drink 7/14/2005

It's dark, the music is not too loud, prices are great, and the service was quick and friendly. It isn't a place to stay all night, but it's a great place to go before or after hitting the regular night spots. I really enjoy it evertime I go there. Pros: Great drinks, not very expensive, very comfortable Cons: no table service more

Good way to start your evening 6/26/2005

Tantrum is a good choice when heading out for a night in Chicago. The location can be a bit dicey. But plenty of street parking, no cover and strong drinks make this place a good choice. You can hit Tantrum for a few drinks before heading out to the clubs and more expensive places. Pros: Strong drinks., Good value. more

Great Hidden Gem 9/12/2004

This place has amazing martini's and is one of the few places in Chicago where you can sit and have an amazing drink and actually talk to the people around you without a mass of bodies or thumping bass. Loved it! Pros: menu of martinis, comfortable seating, cool atmosphere more

couldnt believe it.... 5/5/2003

More than once I saw the bartender stop in the middle of making a drink and answer his cell phone. I even saw this once while he was in the middle of shaking a martini... isnt going to a bar, about getting good service? I was disappointed, otherwise, a great space and good drinks... more

sub par martini 4/27/2003

i had their "special" martini here. the editors of citysearch got this one wrong (although they're usually on). This place is not worth it at all. There are far better martinis to be found in Chicago more

great martinis 11/1/2002

Laugh, Drink, Look & Compliment 8/14/2002

Walk through the door with friends, obtain some readily available comfortable real-estate, LAUGH at your buddy who couldnt figure out which restroom was the mens, immediatley receive your perfectly made mixed DRINK, sit back, relax and take a LOOK at the cool, friendly people surrounding you, lastly give a COMPLIMENT to the gorgeous bartender who always takes the time to properly chill all martini glasses before pouring in the ingrediants. WELL DONE TANTRUM more

Post-Gioco 7/29/2002

Great location. Great decoration. Music can be a little loud. Don't have too many of the martini's -- they're yummy, but dangerous. Pros: Location, Ambience Cons: Pricey, Can be loud more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Rather than the kicking and screaming you might expect, Tantrum is a place for the adult in you, offering a soft-glow refuge from the surrounding cold, hard city streets. A stylish and sprawling mahogany bar attracts after-work yuppies, while lavish couches provide pleasant conversational areas. Tantrum is banking on those pioneers looking to get more bang for their buck in the condo-booming area of South Loop, but there isn't much of a neighborhood to speak of yet. Although not a destination spot, Tantrum's gutsy arrival is sure to appeal to the growing number of residents and nearby businesspeople.

    The Draw
    The martini is the drink of choice. The black martini mixes Chambord and Absolut Kurant, not too sweet, while the signature Tantrum blends Stoli orange with orange juice, dangerously masking any hint of alcohol. Looking for a childhood treat? The butterscotch martini is a silky-smooth concoction complemented by a Werther's butterscotch candy. Yum.
