    Rock Music Bar on the fringe of Wrigleyville. Great for late nights and before/after show at Metro. Did I mention great for late night?!

    $15.00 minimum for credit cards. Try to visit the upstairs; it is usually too crowded up there to allow anymore people, but it is better than the downstairs bar.
