Anyone know of a romantic bar in Chicago to go for after-dinner drinks on a Friday night?

My SO and I are going to dinner next Friday, and I want to take him for a drink or two afterwards. I like lounge-y places with really low lighting, and small tables--or little sofas-- to allow footsies or hand-holding. It doesn't have to be empty or whisper-quiet, I just want us to be able to create our own little world and not have to yell to be heard.
We usually go to friendly neighborhood bars or gastropubs, so I'm really out of the loop when it comes to places like what I've described. I want to do something a bit different because next week we're reuniting after spending three months apart while he worked overseas.
We're having dinner in Lakeview, and then eventually returning to Rogers Park. Anyplace that's either between or accessible to those two 'hoods (via CTA or a short taxi trip) would be great, but I'm okay with going out of the way for a strong recommendation.
Thanks for your help!
