Hands down, my favorite bar in Chicago! I've only been a few times, but always leave having had one of the best nights in a long time. They have two stages of live music and even on Sunday's the crowd is lively. The bands that play there engage with the audience, and I've collected the entire discography of LIndsay Alexander. You have to try this bar, and make sure to get the long island iced tea.. it's lethal.
I took my parents here when they were in town. It's great Italian food with a live piano playing and a cozy atmosphere. The price is reasonable, especially because the food is so wonderful. I'd recommend to anyone looking for a restaurant in Old Town
This place is just a couple blocks from where I've been living for about a year and a half, but I only just tried it a couple of weeks ago. Not only is the food way better than I expected, they have reasonable prices on a wide variety of drinks. They have specials every night, giving you an excuse to stop in any day of the week.
I go here with my aunts every time they visit Chicago. The food is really good and they play live music making the whole night really fun. It's in a really nice part of Old Town where it's not too congested.
