    A nocturnal sanctuary for all the late night rift-raft. One of my favorite bars in Chicago. Dark, cozy, terrific cocktails and service, oh and they have a waterfall.

    The atmosphere here is amazing. Long swerving wooden candle lit bar makes it harder to notice if you are staggering a bit. Extremely relaxing

    Do yourself a favor and don't do cocktails here. Beers are a steal on Tuesdays for the area. Fun dive bar to chill and catch up.

    Refreshingly quirky little joint. Stellar jukebox. Very boozy throwback drinks. Dark meandering curvy bar right outta 50s Vegas. Waterfall!

    If you came for a show, good luck. They don't run a tight ship here. First act 100 minutes after posted time, and at midnight on a Monday

    I left Williamsburg once and I guess it doesn't want to leave me. Stay if you like a sleezy crowds and reasonably priced drinks. Leave if you know how to drink like an adult.

    Unimpressed. Rude service, bland crowd. Why would anyone choose to be a hipster wannabe? Too many great bars in LS to bother with this place.

    The best 4am bar in Chicago, and it looks like Ron Burgundy's man cave. So go and remember to tip your bartender.

    Offering patrons a laid-back spot that’s easy on the eyes and run by the same people behind Estelle’s and Easy Bar. Sample 20 beers on draft, flip though the jukebox, or just pound a few back. Read more
