This West Town late-night spot on the corner of Grand and Ashland is a popular neighborhood watering hole and live music venue for rock n' roll, rockabilly, blues and soul music. The spacious dance floor is home to late-night customers enjoying the sounds of Old-School House, Latin, Top-40, and Mash-up DJs, but during afternoon sporting events, the bar--mere blocks from the United Center--is a neighborhood hangout with flat-screen TVs and an impressive sound system. During warmer months, an outdoor beer garden with bags is popular, especially for those who want to order takeout. There's no kitchen here, but ordering in is encouraged.
