About Pops for Champagne

40 years of popping bottles has enshrined Pops for Champagne with a title of “Chicago standard,” undoubtedly. Situated on a busy corner in the heart of downtown Chicago’s shopping district, visitors are delighted to find a charming, unpretentious (though clearly high-end) champagne bar that speaks directly to locals and wine nerds, not just crowds of tourists.

Boasting one of the best champagne collections I’ve ever seen, one is invited to dive as deeply into sparkling-wine-obsession as their interest (and pocketbook) allows. The atmosphere is comfortable, the staff knowledgable and welcoming, and while not exactly a full restaurant menu, the snacks and light bites pair perfectly with all manner of fizz.

Pops definitely caters to a bubbles-seeking crowd, but for those of us with a group of mixed palates, they offer a concise but thoughtful array of still wines, spirits, and cocktails (many of which include champagne) if you need a break from the effervescence. All-in-all, it’s an easy stop to accidentally lose an entire afternoon.
