  • Great karaoke on Tuesday. Good atmosphere, great booze & beers
  • $3 PBR Tall boys
  • Great Thursday night Trivia
  • Dog bar! Bring your pooch and enjoy the free popcorn!
  • Great little neighborhood pub with a nice vibe and good selection of beer.
  • Great bartender. Awesome beer garden.
  • Super dog friendly - inside and on the patio!
  • Supposed to be haunted by the ghost of Wally, the former owner who unfortunately shot himself upstairs after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. He's still watching over the old bar to this day.
  • A high fence, strings of cafe lights and lots of evidence of a green thumb on staff creates the kind of homey back patio we'd all have right outside our back doors if we could.
  • Great spot to wait for a Metra train (if you have a long wait.) Nice, clean bathrooms, friendly clientele/staff, good prices.
  • Patio is dog friendly!
  • If you remember this place before it was 'cleaned up' (boo), check out the 'IN/OUT' grid here: http://www.chibarproject.com/Reviews/BucktownPub/BucktownPub.htm. If not totally accurate, pretty funny!
  • no food, only popcorn, just drinks, just fine.
  • Wifi password: "cortland"
  • $3.50 Stella Pints on Wednesday, can't go wrong.
  • $4 pints on Tuesdays
  • It's on the tamale route.
  • Play Ms. Pac-man!
  • My fav bar in the city. Great beers on tap, friendly waitstaff & lots of regulars. Trivia @ 8 on Thursdays rocks. Awesome outdoor patio, but remember they don't serve food. Tasty free popcorn though!
  • Great karaoke on Tuesday nights along with 4 dollar drafts... can't go wrong :)
