Part of the trader's Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse that also includes Cactus Bar & Grill next door, Alcock's across the street and Poag Mahone's kitty corner.

"Cal's is a tiny beer-and-a-shot joint in the South Loop favored by punks, bike messengers, and traders who lost their asses in the market before noon. Cal’s Bukowski-esque charm gives way to an even nuttier atmosphere on the weekends, when live music brings an even more debauched crowd, but the prices are much better than any you'll find at the restaurant bars in the neighborhood."

– excerpt from Chip Dudley's Chicago Reader article "Chicago 101 The Neighborhood Tavern" (September 22, 2006)
