Did this place ever open up? There aren't any reviews on yelp.com and the website says 'coming soon', but funny enough Details Magazine calls it one of the best new bars in America in their February 2013 issue.
My neighbors mail ended up in my mailbox and when I saw the Best New Bars in America on the cover I had to take a look.

Mr. McGee told me "off the record" that they'll be opening at the end of January. I guess I jumped the gun a bit when I created this listing ... anyway, he also told me that there will be Polynesian bar food of some kind. Perhaps pu pu platters?

I also heard "end of January" just today as well.

Fortunately, I'll be back there Feb 4-8 - SO looking forward to checking it out!! Sounds like some great stuff coming

It took a friend 6 months longer to open up a coffee house than she had planned due to bureaucracy so I can only imagine what a bar has to go through.
I'm looking forward to seeing the pics and hopefully being able to visit Three Dots and a Dash after it opens.

Looking forward to this. Chicago proper is quite "Tiki-deficient" at the moment. I've heard February opening.

HA! Wonder what it cost to get on that list?

Seriously though, can't wait to see what they've done with the "Trader Joe's" tikis.

Yesterday's Chicago Reader (1/31/13) reviewed the bbq restaurant they opened upstairs. It says the tiki bar is opening "later this year."

Yes ... and now I'm hearing through the grapevine that the opening date is more likely to be March. Sigh. Gotta be patient.

Any word on whether it's still possibly opening this month (March)?

3 Dots and a Dash is about to start hiring: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/fbh/3767601990.html

This has to be a good sign!
