    One of the only acceptable bars in Wrigleyville. Say 'hi' to Brendan on Mondays, get sloppy on whiskey. Reliable Tamale Man spotting place after Metro shows.

    Refreshingly unpretentious, this beat-up bar is the perfect place to escape from—or mentally prepare for—the insanity of Wrigleyville with a game of a pool. Read more

    One of my favorite bars in Chicago if not my favorite. Dope beer selection, good crowd, and they have a straight up punk juke box. Menzingers, against me!, and descendants plus more.

    Don't tell the bartender how to do their job. They don't come to your job and slap the dick out of your mouth.

    The female bartender with tattoos knows nothing about liquor. Tells you to fuck yourself if you ask her to do her job.

    Probably the best bar you'll find in Wrigleyville. Decent crowd (ie not douchey or fratty), decent selection of beers on tap for a decent price and a jukebox with good alt/ indie rock tunes.

    Sure, lots of piercings and full sleeve tats but a very solid beer list & free pool on Sun., Mon. & Tues. Shot glasses are kept in the freezer - nice touch. Bring cash - no credit cards accepted.

    If your strapped for cah go with the $3 PBRs or I'd go for the Rogue draft if you have some cash to burn. Staff is amazing. Probably the best dive bar in Chicago.
