Despite the cutesy name, you’ll find a crowd much more diverse than just financial types and fair-haired women in this Loop hangout. Most crowded on weekday evenings and during the lunchtime rush, this no-frills tavern offers pub grub such as spicy wings, fried zucchini, onion rings and a variety of wraps, along with daily food specials such as the Friday-night Wisconsin fish fry. Decor is sparse (think wood-paneled walls, neon beer signs and bar stools aplenty) and the jams on the jukebox are as diverse as the crowd itself. Inexpensive draft beers and stiff mixed drinks make this unpretentious pub a fair alternative for a drink downtown without the pomp and circumstance of fancier spots.
