    My favorite bar in Chicago. Bartenders great, drinks cheap, vibe genuine. I've never left without making friends. Nisei is a community. A community deeply, deeply rooted in Malört.

    Friendliest bartenders, board games, always a good deal, and always something interesting happening!

    The Malort-arita is oddly good tasting. Friendly bartenders, popcorn, darts, and less annoying than 99% of Wrigleyville.

    Only been here once, but it had a really great/friendly atmosphere. I appreciated that it wasn't super crowded and I could actually talk to the people I was with.

    Get a shot of Malort from Dougie, you'll mostly not regret it.

    Better than average juke, even now that they have Touchtunes.

    Only bar that carries Pac12 channel. During Oregon v Oregon State game it's like an episode of Portlandia in here.

    The alcohol is watered down. Seriously, I guarantee they add water to their hard liquor bottles.
