vibe: 4.5 | quality: 5 | service: 4 | selection: 5 | $$

I was looking forward to going here after reading about the selection they had. I certainly wasn't let down; it was simply the most impressive selection of craft beer I've ever seen at a bar. I'm not going to go into what all they had, just read the previous reviews or look at their website. When I arrived at Saturday night the place was full. The atmosphere was pretty laid back but loud simply because there were so many people there. My only complaint was the bartenders. They just weren't very friendly. They seemed rather arrogant and impatient when people would come up to the bar to order drinks. Perhaps the bartender's were just having a bad day, because from the sounds of the other reviews, unfriendly service seems pretty abnormal! The bartenders were busy and fast though, and they did a good job making sure everyone got waited on in a timely fashion which is the important thing really. We left after two beers because we just weren't enjoying ourselves there. I'd definitely like to go back the next time I'm in Chicago simply for the stellar selection, but perhaps I'll go in the afternoon when it isn't as busy.

**UPDATE**
Did go back during my last visit in the afternoon and WOW was it different. So much more relaxing down to earth! The bartenders were very friendly and in good spirts. Had a great time. Will have to hit up this place every time I'm in town for sure.

This bar has international personality, a true "travelers tavern". Exceptional draft program showcasing domestic and European brews equally. Their bottled list offers 100+ selections from all over the world. If you stay too long they have you covered to recover with a full espresso and coffee bar.
