4.49/5  rDev +1.1%

Very cool place with one of the best selections I've seen in the states. Very friendly bouncer/doorman who keeps a mean count on the patrons inside, so the fire marshall would be proud. Open air, which can be a bit hot in the summer, but a cold beer solves all those problems. Great decor with the maps & books around. Probably the best service I've ever had anywhere. Walk up to the bar when the place is at capacity and you'll still get a bartender's attention within 30 seconds and be sipping within another minute or so. Don't know what you want? No problem. I told the bartender my style preference and he returned with three choices. Did I mention that this is while they were at capacity? Amazing. No food at all, but they have a host of delivery menus & have a great "buy two beers and get free grub from the sponsoring restaurant" night. Very friendly, too crowded (no offense to the doorman!), and a memorable evening all around. Got an evening in Chicago? Find this place. It's worth the cab fare.
