    "Intimate" doesn't do it justice. You'll be packed so tight you'll have to change your relationship status on Facebook. What it lacks in space it more than makes up for in authenticity.

    You can find the best trivia in the city here on Wednesdays. Prepare to feel like a dummy but have fun. And come early for the happy hour!

    What more can you ask for when you have fantastic happy hour deals and awesome entertainment? Head over on Monday (Spelling Bee) or Wednesday (Trivia) nights! Be Independent and free.

    this is a place where you can chill up front with friends over cheap beers, catch a show in an intimate back room, and maybe spot a cast member of Girls. i'm not big on this area, but i'd come back.

    The music room gets crowded, but it’s a wonderful spot in the neighborhood, with some really great music and spoken word.

    An absolute legend, the trivia on Wednesdays is the hardest in the city with amazing prizes to match. Bar staff is incredible. What a time.

    Live music on Sunday nights! They have local artists come in and perform , from singing to poetry to jokes! Worth all the entertainment.

    One of my few regular spots. Don't go for the live music, do go for the super rad backyard, good drinks, & bartenders. Order a stella w/lemonade in the summer & a cider with whiskey in the winter.

    Girls happened here. Marnie leaned in and performed on her own here. 🎶 There's somethin' in the air tonight. Maybe there's a fire burnin' out in Riverside. 🎶

    It is a good place to eat food. It is a good place to listen to the rock music. They can really rock it out. Rock over London, Rock on Chicago, Wheaties, the breakfast of champions.
