Dino Vulpitta | Brando's Speakeasy
Established in 2007, Brando's Speakeasy, an upscale karaoke bar and cocktail lounge, has become a staple of Chicago's hospitality ecosystem. With a library of more than 40,000 unique songs, Brando’s offers the opportunity for music lovers of all stripes to channel their inner rock star, and signing up to sing can be done via smartphone app.
Between the music, hand-crafted cocktails and the friendly staff, Brando’s provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere that appeals to a diverse clientele and brings them together. The East Room can be used for private events, making Brando’s ideal for anything from a night out with friends to a business party.
Although Brando’s is only 15 years old, its old-time vibes are genuine. The bar is housed in the Loop’s landmarked Fisher Building, which was constructed in 1896 and is the oldest building of its size in the city that’s still standing. It had once been a location of Hannah & Hogg’s, one of Chicago’s most famous pre-Prohibition saloons. This rich history adds to the unique atmosphere of the bar.
Brando's Speakeasy is owned by Dino and managed by Manny (KJ), Eric, Christian, and Luis. Their goal is to be the best at what they do and to make their customers happy.
