A Cocktail-Concocting Candyland Has Taken Over Chicago’s Largest Patio

Something seriously sweet has popped up at Recess.

If you’ve been down to Recess lately you’ll know that when they plan a revamp they mean business. Chicago’s largest outdoor patio and its cozy amalgamation of bars, food stands, and cabana houses have been providing a comfortable and colorful winter hideout for months but now they’ve gone full throttle.

The snug sanctuary has once again had an ostentatious overhaul reworking and restyling the contents of their 14,500-square-foot space. Within the den of shipping containers, a cocktail-concocting Candyland by the name of Sugar Rush can now be found and you’re going to feel like a kid in a candy store when you see what’s on offer.

Every Thursday through Sunday until March 14, The Sugar Rush Pop-Up will be offering a West Loop winter escape where candy and cocktails combine to offer some tantalizingly-tasty tipples like you’ve never seen before.

If there’s a way to counter the teeth-chattering chill and the white winter snow it’s with a bright boozy beverage beside the flicker of flames.

The unique cocktail concoctions and Recess’ reliable boozy hot chocolates are reason enough to head down but there’s much more than just boozy remedies in this ostentatious retreat. At Sugar Rush color knows no bounds and the creative candlyland now has an array of giant fantastical walls and bold backdrops that are worthy of a Tim Burton film set.

Prismatic displays comprised of giant ice cream cones, lollipops, hard candy, donuts, cupcakes, and many more will most certainly have you feeling like the Willy Wonka of the West Loop.

Themed photo ops provide eye candy that rival even the contents of the cocktails on offer and the combination of the two is absolutely perfect for the ‘Gram.

Every ticket to Recess’s The Sugar Rush Pop-Up comes with a Sugar Rush specialty cocktail, a boozy Recess Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate, a Gourmet Rice Krispie treat, a Recess beanie hat, and a goodie bag of extra sweet treats.

Get your tickets quick, they won’t be hanging around.
