    You can see the Lake from this lake bar.

    Nice place to hide from the impending apocalypse up the street.

    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.

    Cool dive bar.

    My go-to place in Wrigleyville. Great service and prices, even after a game.

  • Mike H.

    Great place for a beer before the Cubs game.

    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

    Try the beer.

    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.

    I guess they like tips. who knew

    This place fucking rules. They've ONLY thrown me out once...ONCE! PBR and punk rock. Toby owns this place or some shit and Teenage Bottlerocket fucking kills. Yeah, they're on Fat Wreck now..

    $2 PBR before Metro shows is clutch!

    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.

    Juan Bermudez · October 18, 2012
  • Nick M.

    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.

    No longer cash only--$20 minimum though.

    Good spot to go before a show at the metro

    Cash bar with a pinball machine. Ftw!

    Nikki Nefarious · December 20, 2011
  • Kevin F.

    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.

    Kevin Farris · December 11, 2011
  • Kathryn H.

    Say what you'd like, but it's the best bar in Wrigleyville and a good bar in general.

    Kathryn H · October 19, 2011

    Hardly hipsters. It's Wrigleyville after all.

    Michelle Roman · September 24, 2011

    Hipster Central... gross. And they don't take credit cards

    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.

    Cash only, no food...good beer selection. I like!

    Don't put on Astro-Zombies by the Misfits. It's overplayed.
