Even on a weekday afternoon, there's no room to sit or stand. Consider that before you trek out here.
Pretty much can't go wrong with any of the cocktails. The music is always good and the beer list is always strong.
I've meet some amazing people at the matchbox. It's my favorite bar to end up at on New Year's Eve.
They don't cheat you on drinks. Get a martini
The smoked meat sandwich is still delicious!
Tiny dive, but it's awesome. Ask about the "Wizards Blood Drink" and make sure to get the magic wand with it :)
It's called matchbox for a reason. Have a gimlet! 🍸
Margaritas and gimlets all the way! Tiny place, but quite a treat.
Get a gimlet and try not to use the bathroom if you can help it
What to Order || Margarita with egg white and lemon-lime juice
Ask for the French 75, it's divine.
It's not on the menu, but it's the best kept secret in Chicago. Order a French 75, they'll know what you're talking about.
The Kentucky Tiki is the play here. It tastes like the beaches of Hawaii and the backwoods of Kentucky at the same time.
The margarita - thats all there is
Best Gimlet I've ever had, the powdered sugar on the rim made it even better. Gotta come back soon.
Try the Margarita!
Best place - hands down - for a cocktail.
Best manhattan in town.
Sit inside and you'll get a much better Matchbox experience.
The cosmos r off da chain.....
Gin gimlets, extra sugar, please.
Best gin gimlets on earth; amazing margs
They make a great margarita! They also have a good cigar selection!
Only gin gimlet in the city worth drinking
Great classic drinks. Try the gimlets.
Best brandy manhattans
Pineapple gimlet FTW
Vodka gimlet is the way to go.
Pineapple gimlet. Just do it.
The original "cocktail bar" in Chicago. If you're not cool to the staff, they'll mock you publicly - so be nice.
WTF. Don't get a Manhattan like everyone says. If the bartender is the well bearded guy, you are better off with beer. Is this a Manhattan?
Literally the size of a matchbox w/ THE best drinks! Try the pineapple gimlet (made with egg whites and powdered sugar) or any drinks made w/ their own ginger-infused vodka!
To prevent a hangover, Have an antioxidant-packed 70 Proof hum on the rocks & chug a pint of water at the end of your evening of outstanding cocktails here
Amazing is all I can say
Localize your Manhattan (which they do amazingly here) with locally made hum in place of the sweet Vermouth
The world's narrowest bar. (Not really, but feels like it.) Order something with sugar on the rim. You won't regret it.
Order an old school gentleman's drink. They make cocktails right.
Have the best margarita and brandy manhattan around. Sample an extensive array of rums, beers, bourbons, tequilas, scotches & wines.
