    Really lovely venue. The upper floor has tons of room to watch from, though watch your head if you're tall.

    The vibe of an "intimate" venue with the space of a larger one; the best of both worlds.

    I've encountered assholes that taste better than the beers here. Clean your taps every now and then, guys...

    Ugh. This place sucks.

    This place is awful, food and atmosphere-wise, anyway. Server gave us two warm tap beers, which took 10 minutes to get. We sent them back. The Jenga Pretzels were nasty. I left with a stomach ache.

    Irish egg rolls are dank. Always good music posters for other events posted. If u don't find something you like on one side, you may find it on the other. Music on venue and pub side most nights!

    Friendly staff, great food and killer sound. A joy to play there. The green room is bigger than my house. Only downside was a 'freshen up' guy in the club restroom. Use the pub toilet instead

    Waitstaff are amazing! Food is delish! Entertainment for the evening was phenomenal (MANDY BARRY IS FANTASTIC!!)

    Free acoustic show by Tony, Aaron and Rebecca of the Tossers the first Friday of every month.

    The "Chicago" Pizza is a MUST ORDER off their menu!

    This is the hidden gem of the music venues in Chicago! It has an awesome stage, lights, and sound, PLUS you can grab a table on the balcony if your heart desires!

    The while "make reservations for dinner & get VIP entry to a show is bullshit.

    Jenny Hertel · March 12, 2011

    6 Nations Rugby Championship will be shown here. Known for its live music, the pub also shows rugby and football (soccer) matches live.

    The house music appears to be somebody's "Best of the 90s" CD turned up way too loud.

    Saw Wale & Mic Terror here a while ago. Nice venue, the help working the door left a lot to be desired.

    A great venue for music - small and intimate. Order the chips with curry.
