A great beer bar made special by its vintage selection. Long bar on your left, tables to your right.
Definitely a punk bar. But its the Bourbon and Single Malt selection that really gets me excited.
The real problem with the place is that it's a smoke fest. Honestly, you can't properly enjoy the wonderful libations that are available. The addition of a top-notch ventilation system would get me in the place a lot more often. This is coming from a former regular smoker. Even in my current "have one or two when drinking" situation, my experience simply gets dominated by the plume.
That said, I stand firmly behind Mike and his wish to run a smokey bar. But he'll see me a lot more often when that Chicago smoking ban kicks in. Ironic. I hate the law but it will give them more of my business. So that is why my atmosphere score is so low. I just can't get past it. Beer selection gets a nice score, but never forget that it would be about a 10 out of 5 if you are a whiskey fan.
