Need a stiff drink? You're in good hands here. This dark wood-paneled Wicker Park pub is run by brothers Eric and Dan Palm, who have spent years serving locals at The Silver Palm and The Matchbox, respectively. All cocktails are mixed with fresh fruit juice, so similar to the Matchbox, you can sip on a brandied cherry-garnished Manhattan, a powdered sugar-rimmed margarita or a gimlet made with vodka infused in-house with fresh fruit. While a temporary food menu takes the place of a full one still in the works, early favorites include Three Floyds beer-battered chicken tenders, pineapple and chorizo tacos and a bacon and fried egg-topped burger. Wondering who the bar is named after? Look for the framed picture of Gunner the horse behind the bar.
