This place is cool. I can't really think of a better way to describe it. It's just cool. A great spot to be just away from all of the really busy parts of Chicago. Beer list is deep but won't blow anybody away that's been lucky enough to travel all around for beer. Still feels a little like an old school bar, but that's part of the fun.

Love this place. Outstanding selection - with a heavy bias for high-octane brew and belgians. Great vibe. Appealing as both a place to relax with a brew or get some work done on a Friday afternoon as it is a place to spend an entire evening exploring delicious brews.

My favorite Chicago multi-tap, and a place I make it a point to visit several times on every Chicago visit. Great draft and bottle selection, with new items almost daily. Nice, beer-savvy people on both sides of the bar.

Oh, and they now do take credit cards.

This is my neighborhood bar... a mere two blocks away from my home of the last 15 years.
The Map Room is widely known and loved by most. It was a pioneer in brining Chicagoans a wide variety of craft beers.

I started going in 2003 after returning from England and finding out that The Map Room had an engine that poured English beers from a cask.

My only suggestion is that they should serve flights.

Visit The Map Room when you are in Chicago ... But, know that there is much more in what many here believe is becoming the center of the third generation of craft brewers.

My go-to, very first stop when visiting Chicago. Possibly tied with Belmont Station in Portland as my favorite place in the US to bend my elbow. Fantastic beer selection, well-educated staff and, well...it is truly a Map Room!
