Where the hell am I? I'm at the map room.
This place is awesome. I often find myself in Chicago, and when I do, I always manage a way to get to the Map Room. A little about the place...
The place is set up like a neighborhood pub. The bar is long and rectangular. In the back of the bar, there is a (free) pool table and a couple of dart boards. There are booths and tables around the perimeter.
On any given night, you can sit back and enjoy the revelry. The bar is in Wrigleyville (I think) and as a result, there are a lot of 20-somethings and 30-somethings enjoying the revelry.
The service is always good. Most of the bartenders are very knowledgeable about their beers, and if you need suggestions, they will help you.
The selection is impressive. There are at least 20 different tap lines, and most of the time, they have some really rare items on tap. If you want bottles, their beer menu scans for pages and pages....
The best time to go is on a Sunday afternoon. You'll find yourself in there with only a dozen or so people. Since this place isn't that large, it can get a bit clausterphobic on a Friday or Saturday night.

Opens at 6am for coffee and pastries. Starts serving beer at 11am. This place is absolutely lovely during the day with open windows during nice days. I, personally, avoid the weekends and nights. Too many amatuers. World class beer list and a very nice staff.
