Another stop on the Chicago tour.

The look and the feel of the place is totally faux biker bar. The only bikers showing up here are rocking north face jackets and armani sunglasses. Lot's of chrome and diamond plate to give it a bad ass feel.

The beer list was impressive. I had my heart set on some rare sours from their reserve list. Sadly it was devoid of anything that really interested me. I settled for a Blackout stout from 07. It showed some sings of age but was tasty for the most part.

The service was super friendly and fast. Always love that.

The food was pretty solid. We only ordered a bunch of apps but everything was good.

Overall not sure I will stop back but I'm glad I got the chance to check it out. (729 characters)

Simply put - Twisted Spoke is one of the best bars anywhere. Spent most of the day there on a Sunday to watch playoff football - our server was fantastic, the beer selection excellent, the bourbon selection the best I've ever seen (really!), the vibe welcoming to everyone (even kids), and just all around a great experience. Didn't have a meal, but the food looked outstanding. This bar is an absolute must visit on any trip to Chicago. (440 characters)

Good spot in the West Town area. Despite the 'biker bar' theme this is a chill place most of the time. Always a varied and eclectic tap list to choose from - plenty of national and local options on tap with some carefully picked selections. Quality bar food - burgers, breakfast and sandwiches all hit the spot. (311 characters)
