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 place has a classic jukebox and pours a great drink. On a street better know for college hangouts this is a classic bar. Better late at night.

Great little quirky pub with free monkey nuts. :) There is a 60's style juke box for music and everyone sings and dances along. Great fun in this pub

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

Went here after a delicious dinner at shaws. It's in the Gold Coast bar district and has some old charm. Reminds me of my ole neighborhood bar in Austin, Deep Eddy.

We were visiting some friends who live nearby and they suggested this restaurant/bar. Initially I was worried going there with 3 small kids, in case they would be too noisy. Well, we all fit in really well since there was a Cubs game on at...More
