“At the violet hour, when the eyes and back 
Turn upward from the desk, when the human engine waits 
Like a taxi throbbing waiting . . . 
At the violet hour, the evening hour that strives 
Homeward, and brings the sailor home from sea”

T.S. Eliot, “The Waste Land” (1922)

The Violet Hour serves handcrafted artisanal cocktails in the heart of Wicker Park.
