    Bit divey, and you may get attitude from the bartenders (or patrons) or be privy to a fight, but they have pool (sort of) and two Golden Tee machines. Open late serving fried foods, too.

    Douchey and poorly made drinks. If they use the wrong liquor and you ask to them to make it again with the correct one, the bartender will taste to see if you are lying and charge you for both! Rude.

    Boss Bar is open really late and you always find familiar faces, mostly from River North area Industry family. Food available and the kitchen still open late night ad well. Sport Bar sort.
