I really dig this place. The menu is a stack of papers on a clipboard, probably three to four pages of beers, one for drafts, one for bottles, one for their aged beers and probably one more that I've forgotten about. The commentary is crass and awesome, probably borderline offensive but if you're easily offended, you probably shouldn't be here in the first place.

If you really don't like this place: You're doing it wrong, and we don't want you visiting anyways. If you want to come with a notepad & gripe about everything wrong, don't. If you want to have a good meal & watch a game with some of the best beers available, you are more than welcome

Simply put - Twisted Spoke is one of the best bars anywhere. Spent most of the day there on a Sunday to watch playoff football - our server was fantastic, the beer selection excellent, the bourbon selection the best I've ever seen (really!), the vibe welcoming to everyone (even kids), and just all around a great experience. Didn't have a meal, but the food looked outstanding. This bar is an absolute must visit on any trip to Chicago.

Good spot in the West Town area. Despite the 'biker bar' theme this is a chill place most of the time. Always a varied and eclectic tap list to choose from - plenty of national and local options on tap with some carefully picked selections. Quality bar food - burgers, breakfast and sandwiches all hit the spot.
