    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

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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    The music's usually pretty good (though sometimes the live music is off the mark). Read more

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

    When to go: A recent change of ownership means a new cocktail list and an array of DJ nights. Read more

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

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