Looks like everyone forgot about this fun place. Great drinks and great music. Although they are open weekends only it is really fun.

A friend and I had a late dinner near Copa and saw the sign so we tried it. I wish we hadn't. The place has a very strong metrosexual feel, a trend that died several years ago. I don't mind some smoke in a bar, but I've never gagged on it as I did at Copa. The drinks we had were just so-so, and it took 10 minutes to get them as the bartender could not be distracted from gabbing with her friends. I'll take my hard-earned money to a friendlier bar that does not treat its customers as annoyances like Copa does.

Totally cool place with hot women and lots of cool stuff in this place: COPA. I liked the retro design , felt like Sinatra was gonna show up! But he would have to listen to cooler tunes played by DJs. I didn't see any bad attitude from anyone there!!

Pros: cool martinis, lots of specials, cool music

This place is slightly bigger than a CTA rail car, and almost as enjoyable. If we wanted to hang around people putting on stupid club attitudes we would have skipped Copa and gone straight to Le Passage. If these people are "hipsters" then Chicago's nightlife scene is going downhill in a hurry.

Cons: small, rude patrons

This place is one of the few spots where you actually can still hear old school/underground hip hop. The early part of the night usually starts out with the normal house crap but towards the end of the night they will play more hip-hop. This spot is for you and your buddies to just chill and hang out.

I had ragging on places...but the chairs in this place are uncomfortable, its very small, and they have no kitchen. It really felt like it was on the verge of closing...hopefully they will add a few things liven it up. The place was fairly empty after work on a Thursday...it probably picks up later in the night...just think several aspects are missing to make this place work.

Hey my Chitown playas, I really liked hanging out here. Copa is like a lounge I imagined the Rat Pack hung out in. I had a babe on my arm and a drink in my hand. THAT'S Life!

Pros: hot chicks, strong drinks, cold A/C

Everyone from the staff through the patrons had a major attitude. The bartenders would rather chat with their friends than serve drinks to those they didn't know, and when they did it was with a "who are you?" attitude. The patrons were rude and smarmy. No more arrogant meatheads, please.

Why haven't I heard of this place before? We parked by this bar when we shopping one day and peaked in the window. It wasn't open yet (too early in the day). We returned on another night and found this joint was hopping with a cool crowd. It was a fun alternative and the peeps were nice.

I was in the area with some friends and happened upon the Copa. This place is terrible. The guys are either meatheads in tight T-shirts or squirrelly club wannabes in shiny shirts. The girls look like rejects from a Poison video. All of them were trying desperately to put on their best cool club attitude, and they failed miserably.

I attended a party there on Saturday night and had no idea what I would find.
This place is just great. The decore is clubby and the staff is very nice.
People we're rockin to the DJ.
Did not expect the place to be so much fun, will return soon!!

Copa is a good mix of little club, lounge and bar. No food, no BS, just booze in a slick atmosphere.

When did this place show up? I went to the old bar and found this little diamond. Copa is this little fantastic spot with a cool DJ. I felt like I crashed a great party. I called my friends to join me and we had a great time.

I live in the neighborhood and just discovered this gem. I felt like I was at someone's private lounge for a martini party. It's a no nonsense, unpretentious lounge with taste.

This is a sleek, little place where you can grab a cold cocktail and hear some good dj's. I give it a strong recommendation!

In Short
Red and gold vintage wallpaper and a zebra-striped wooden bar create a retro vibe at this neighborhood lounge. Early comers can choose from three booths dwarfed by enormous dome lights or a few tables in the front and…
