Nice eclectic pub with maps, National Geographic and other worldly items scattered around the place. My only real complaint is that it tends to get smoky (can't wait for the smoking ban in Chicago to go into effect), very loud and crowded, especially later in the night. I recommend going during the day or early evenings to avoid these problems.

The bartenders are quick even when the place is crowded. I have never had to wait more than a minute or two for a beer. They also know their stuff when it comes to beer and happily provide good suggestions if you ask which is nice since even the well traveled beer drinker can become over-whelmed by the great variety of options.

There are about 30 taps and 1 cask with many beers you do not commonly see on tap. All beers are served in the proper glassware. They also have well over 100 bottles (too many for me to count). The beers are fresh and the turnover is pretty fast so there is constantly something new on tap. Some of the beers seem a bit pricey but that is just the standard markup on some of the pricier bottles they carry.

Map Room is one of my favorite bars and who doesn't like free food on weekend afternoons.

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.
