Foursquare Tips

  • Still at Marias, the lights are on.
  • Try the kimchi and sausages from our 100 Best list: Its a Polish-Korean mash-up and the best of both worlds. (Look for the free grub to reappear occasionally over the winter.)
  • Thought you'd want to know: Marias Packaged Goods & Community Bar has been nominated for Best New Bar in Time Out Chicagos 2011 Eat Out Awards. Vote now!
  • 99 bottles of beer on the wall.
  • 'Slashie' associated with the Lumpen organization. English pub atmosphere. Contemplative conversations. Studiously selected beers. Probably the best bar on the south side open to lay people.
  • Try whichever of the Marz beers they have on draft.
  • This is my kind of place. All the drinks on tap are special. Wish I lived next door.
  • Cool bar! Nice place
  • try it first; 3/4 ounce pours of any whiskey are half the price.
  • Excellent selection of local, craft beers on draft. Yummm.
  • Top notch Old Fashioned and Margarita served up by Mixologist Kenny Furburger. You will often see the lovely Maria tending the fine selection of beer to go counter.
  • When the weather is nice definitely head out back and check out there great patio. Also on Monday's back there they grill up Korean Polishes.
  • Beer tastings from 8-10pm on Tuesdays! Nick, stop checking-in from your house! Not fair.
  • Very good beer selection. Not so great for trying to just drink whisky. Their over the rocks pour is just one jigger pour with not even a teeny bit of trail. Less than 2oz of Wellet shouldn't be $10
  • 475 odd beers for you to choose from, owed in part to the adjoining bottle shop.
  • $2 Random Shitty Beers. Nothing better than drinking an Icehouse (or worse)
  • A relaxed hangout with an impressive selection of American and Belgian beers on draft, plus literally hundreds more in bottles.
  • Get the Beer!
  • Great tap list, insane bottle list, underrated cocktails.
  • Joe Bryl on the decks Wednesdays is flexible!
