New Chicago Bar Project Reviews

  • T's Bar & Restaurant – double-pint nights and the best looking lesbians in Chicago
  • Elephant & Castle – a surprisingly authentic Limey pub for a chain
  • CND Gyros – cheap draft beer & gyros for lunch and karaoke on Fridays in Streeterville
  • Mystic Celt – the best shepherd's pie in the city in the heart of the Southport Corridor
  • Stocks & Blondes – great Loop spot to get schnockered at lunch time or after work
  • Crew Bar + Grill – Chicago's only gay sports bar with over 60 beers in Uptown
  • Poag Mahone's – no better place after work downtown for a pint o' the black stuff
  • Pitchfork – whiskey and award-winning barbecue in Albany Park
  • Bluelight – you could do far worse after 2am, and be sure to get the Bluelight Special
  • Gallery Cabaret – one of Bucktown's last Bohemian hangouts with free live music daily
  • Bird's Nest – Certified Purveyor of the Miller High Life in Wrightwood Neighbors
  • Richard's Bar – Soprano's-like joint infiltrated by hipsters on weekends in River West

Chicago Bar of the Month

The holiday season brings with it some excellent Chicago traditions: window-shopping on State Street, the Nutcracker performed by the Joffrey Ballet, eating under the tree at the Walnut Room in what once was Marshall Field's. Along the way, be sure to have a Tom & Jerry and a slab of ribs at Miller's Pub.

Coming Next Month on the Chicago Bar Project
