Went with a couple of friends we met for a late night drink. Reminds me of an English pub. Good choice of beers and very reasonable prices.

Music not too loud. Drinks good. Service very good. Love peanuts and they are on the floor. Just a good place to hang out.

Skip the big bars and go to the small neighborhood bars like this one. The daytime bartender is great and adds to the atmosphere. Do not try the “Chicago Handshake “ drink unless you enjoy paint thinner. 😀. Free peanuts and open air seating

This is where you go for beer and/or shots. And endless peanuts in the shell. And the shells go on the floor. It works. Simple. Everyone knows each other but will be quick to include you if you come with an open attitude. Don't expect...More
