Went in on 04/29/11, the night before Dark Lord Day. We came in around midnight and there were open tables, open seats at the bar, and 90's music a playing. As I sat at the bar, someone had put on the entire Nirvana Nevermind cd start to finish, which seemed fitting for the place. Very laid back crowd which was nice, and the bartenders were very nice and on top of things.

Selection was very good, though I would say a slight step down from Hopleaf, especially in the bottle section. Reasonably priced, though the place is cash only. Overall I liked this place a lot. I would probably give Hopleaf a slight edge on this place as I thought their beer selection was better, which is why we're at these bars, though I liked the atmosphere here a lot. Since you can walk there from Hopleaf it is definitely worth a trip to.

My go-to, very first stop when visiting Chicago. Possibly tied with Belmont Station in Portland as my favorite place in the US to bend my elbow. Fantastic beer selection, well-educated staff and, well...it is truly a Map Room!

Map room consistently has a solid tap list and more than a few interesting bottles. Only issue is that they seem to run out of what you are looking for quite often. Not to worry! A quick chat with the bartender will result in you finding a new beer or even brewery that is just as good, or better, than the one you were originally seeking.

This is a good craft brew place to visit. Seemed to be set up like a coffee shop, but with craft beer. Meaning, ample space to set up your labtop and get some work done, while enjoying local brews. The service was fine, but slow, but that was mostly due to another patron and a long winded story. Selection was fine, and they had several local options. But the selection didn't blow me away. The place came highly recommended, and while not quite living up to hype, I'd still recommend checking out.
