Capitol ClubPortage Park | Website
This Portage Park bar and club is a little eccentric and worn around the edges, but that’s just how the diverse, friendly clientele like it. Most evenings the space is home to European, American and Spanish bar-goers of all ages looking for inexpensive drink specials (mostly vodka) and a friendly game of pool. On weekends the scene is a bit livelier, with DJs who spin Polish and American tunes for the dancers who groove under the bar's black lights and glimmering disco ball. (Or on the pole, if the mood strikes.) For those looking to catch the game, there’s a separate sports lounge with a projector scene and plenty of seating.
