Stoped by on 04/20/11, the night before Dark Lord Day. We walked in around 9:45-10PM and were able to get some seats at the bar, which is always nice. Long bar to the left with a wall of beer bottles behind it, and small tables set up all to the right, with a resturant section in the back.

The service was good, as they had 3 bartenders working the bar, and I thought the selection was great. They had La Folie on tap, as well as a new Brooklyn beer and Goose Island Green Line. On the bottle list they had LA Deliverance for $20 a bottle, which is a steal, and they had Madame Rose and Lolita for $20 a piece as well.

The crowd seemed to be pretty laid back and a knowledgable beer geek crowd. Overall I thought it was a great bar I would certainly go back to if I were in Chicago. (786 characters)

A great place not to far from Wrigley. Stopped in there twice on a recent trip. They have a very good and diverse selection.
The place is bigger than it seems, and both times it seemed packed, but we found seats.
The foods were good and they source some local foods.
The beer selection was very good.
All in all a great place to frequent when in the area! (356 characters)
