    A Chicago classic with an incredible beer selection. Sit in the old half of the bar and grab something from Kimski's next door if you get hungry.

    They have good cocktails. Just ask for a menu because they don't list them all out on the wall.

    Very good beer selection. Not so great for trying to just drink whisky. Their over the rocks pour is just one jigger pour with not even a teeny bit of trail. Less than 2oz of Wellet shouldn't be $10

    The Winter Gingerbreww Hot Toddy from Maria's is bartender, Graham Hogans unique concoction. Korean honey-ginger tea brings a fresh, concentrated flavor, and spicy rye whiskey matches that intensity. Read more

    We recommend the Winter Gingerbee Hot Toddy, a novel combination of Korean honey-ginger tea, which brings a fresh concentrated flavor to the drink, and spicy rye whiskey that matches that intensity. Read more

    Beer snobs that sometimes mis-label their taps. Otherwise an okay place.

    Try the kimchi and sausages from our 100 Best list: It’s a Polish-Korean mash-up and the best of both worlds. (Look for the free grub to reappear occasionally over the winter.)

    Ask for bartender's choice- a four dollar pour. Chances are, it'll be a delicious bargain.

    Top notch Old Fashioned and Margarita served up by Mixologist Kenny Furburger. You will often see the lovely Maria tending the fine selection of beer to go counter.

    'Slashie' associated with the Lumpen organization. English pub atmosphere. Contemplative conversations. Studiously selected beers. Probably the best bar on the south side open to lay people.

    Excellent beer selection. Being a 3 floyds fan they have rotating variations i haven't found at other venues. Killer cocktails as well. Definitely a diamond in the rough.
