This neighborhood pub features a little slice of Chicago history in the heart of Lincoln Square. The former speakeasy opened sometime in the 40s and although black and white pictures of past owners and patrons line the walls, the place keeps itself modern with Thursday evening karaoke, live band Friday and a DJ on Saturdays. The focus here is microbrewed beer – more than 100 bottles to be exact – with regional favorites like Three Floyds, BridgePort Brewing Company, and Breckinridge Brewing. The laid back crowd comes from both the local neighborhood and beyond, sipping on signature cocktails like cosmopolitans and margaritas. There’s a liquor store next door for those who want to keep the party going after leaving.
