If any of us were in Chicago right now, we’d be heading for Pops for Champagne, the spot for bubbly and jazz. They just opened a new location in River North, where it's no holds barred – the tables have inset wine buckets, the bar is made of translucent onyx, and sparklers abound. Here’s wishing you the chance to settle into one of their cozy leather couches, pop a bottle, and pour a glass. Speaking of, here’s a Champange glass we're coveting and a few others we'll be adding to our holiday wish list.
Reminiscent of the glass they use at Pops, this one is just so right.
