The Cove LoungeHyde Park | Website
Just a couple blocks from the lake, you’ll find a nautical theme running throughout this Hyde Park watering hole, with a harpoon over the bar, a chandelier made from a ship's wheel and whale-shaped coat hooks to boot. (You’d never know from the bright red neon lights that beckon you from outside.) Inside you'll find eight flat screen TVs, with ample seating for friends looking to have a quiet drink and enjoy the eclectic selection of jams from the jukebox. Look for the daily drink specials scribbled on the chalkboard, with a wide selection of beers, or try your hand at a game of darts or pinball while munching on free popcorn.
