    Went for lunch and were the only people in there, but was happy about it. Food was actually good and the bartender was extremely friendly.

    Only place I have been to in Chicago that demeans a human being for the gender they choose to dress as, and use homophobic language as a front for professionalism and law.

    The prices here are insane ($7-8 for a pint!) and the bartender had to have me walk her through how to make a martini. She's was nice, at least.

    It's loud, crowded, and kinda dirty. But isn't that why you're here?

    Plenty of seating to catch a sports game during the evening. Typically only gets crowded after midnight because it's open until 4am. (Bar also known as 'big shitty')

    My bartender is so pretty. The crowd is relaxed and youthful. There's a dance floor. If I was dancing tonight, I'd TEAR it up!

    The setup in this place is one of the coolest bar setups I've seen. It has everything you could want at a bar. Don't why it's not that busy...

    Possibly the worst bar in Chicago- terrible staff and SUPER overpriced.

    A congregation of dbags, euro trash and random losers. Run by jerk offs. One of the worst bars I've ever been in in any city, in any country and on any planet.

    At first glance it seemed already but once we got inside and ordered a beer I was quite alarmed. $5 for a bottle of coors lite! Seriously!!

    If you know you wanna make it a late night don't wait until 2am to head over. Avoid the line by getting here by 1am at the latest. Then watch the show!

    This is a bar I wouldn't mind blacking out at. That way I wouldn't have to remember how bad it is.

    Only come to Big Shitty when you are beyond hammered and ready to dance on a pee-and-vomit infested floor.
