Drinks between State & Madison and Union Station?

We'll be near State and Madison and then heading back to the train station. I know there are plenty of great spots if we're willing to take a short ride but I'd rather not.

Not too crowded, not so loud that we can't converse. Around 8 or 9 pm on a weekday.
Doesn't have to be elegant but not too seedy for middle aged folks out celebrating.

Prefer moderate to inexpensive pricing.

Thank you for your help!

  1. Perhaps too elegant, but you could go to the bar at Everest. Other choices might be the bar at the JW Marriott on Adams, just west of LaSalle St. or the bar at the W Hotel, in the same block of Adams, accross from the Marriott. You also might consider the bar at AraOn, also on that same block of Adams, on the same side of the street as the W.
