Timmy O'Tooles is a great local hangout. Enter on the street then go straight downstairs. Grab a seat at the bar if possible. Draft beers are unmatched for the area. Sure, Howell and Hood has more options (140ish vs 50ish), but Timmy has a WAY better selection. (Quality over quantity)

They got written up for food violations awhile back so be careful. After all it is a sports bar!!

They always have an excellent tap list at reasonable prices. I prefer the bar to a table, the service is a bit better. The food is solid but unspectacular.

Wed night around 10 PM in July. Did the tourist walk up and down Michigan Ave and noticed the "48 beers on tap" sign as I made my way back to the hotel. Had been to Goose Island and Binny's earlier in the evening, so was not expecting much. This place is below ground, so you can't see inside from street level. To my surprise, even though the streets were pretty empty (surprising to me for such an early time in a big city...), the place was packed. Best thing is the decent beer list. Service, crowd, food selection, etc, not my style. But, I got a couple local brewers that I wanted to try. Worth a visit if you are confined to a couple blocks around the Magnificent Mile.
