  • This kitschy cocktail joint--modeled after a '60s roadside motel--is located in the same building as Groupons Chicago headquarters, which makes it a popular after-hours employee hangout.
  • The McMotel burger is the best damn burger under $6 , bar none.
  • Wifi password is: themotelbar - no spaces, no caps
  • Be careful when you are here with co-workers!
  • The truffle mayo is key to any burger or fries!
  • Free Wi-Fi. The password is: themotelbar and the network is obvious.
  • Don't come here if you are on a tight schedule or in a hurry. It seems this motel operates on a vacation mentality.
  • Popped my cherry, not as stuffy as I was expecting.
  • Here's a tip. Stop sucking. Lame lame place
  • Good eats but oh boy is it totally Douchelandia. The skinny jean industry would collapse if the patrons here stopped buying them.
  • Their new POS is boss. Support is better!!
  • Be ready to wait a long time for any kind of service
  • At $10, the Motel Bar's "Old Fashioned" is an expensive drink but honestly well worth it. Two of these are all you need and easily replaces an evening's round of PBRs.
  • Very cool spot with great cocktails... Also, its not exactly mixology, but when the outside patio is open - try the frozen vodka lemonade slurpees.
  • Truffle fries
  • I almost felt I wasn't cool enough to be here. #ThatCool
  • Great fish tacos
  • Southwest chicken salad is good for lunch. Nice selection of beers for a quick after-work gathering.
  • the owner of motel bar starts fights with food trucks and has called the police on them because he knows his business cannot stand competition. do not support this business
  • Beer was great, cocktails were great.
