    The cocktails are solid and the bartenders will gladly riff on the classics to mix it up for you.

    My go-to when I want a great drink at a reasonable price in a bar with low levels of pretension. Read more

    Excellent classic cocktails (love their Dark & Stormy) and great music. Cheap ginger beer if you are going booze free for the night. Cash only!

    A great corner bar in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood. Order a Negroni or a classic Old Fashioned.

    This awesome place is not a dive bar. It's more like a classy joint.

    No food menu, so don't plan to balance those high alcohol content Belgians with munchies! Great low key spot though, including organic brew options.

    Definitely no longer a dive bar. Reading of what once was (http://www.chibarproject.com/Reviews/Charleston/Charleston.htm) makes me a bit sad.

    Don't get a cocktail. The ambiance is great but the cocktails are tiny and subpar. Get a beer and have a good time with good tunes.

    Cozy dive-bar. If you're in the mood for beer, drink beer. If you're in the mood for wine, drink wine. No kitchen. So if you're in the mood to munch, have a plan.

    The former scruffy saloon changed hands a couple of years ago and morphed into a spot to sip craft beers while DJs spin. But one thing has stayed the same: no TVs. Read more
