  • Great low key speak easyish lounge below street level. Fish tank makes a beautiful 3D TV.
  • At midnight they feed the fish and everyone around the bar gets a free shot
  • Try Jered's Space Juice.
  • Dutch Call is your safe bet. And it's amazing. Music varies from smooth jazz to danceable tech to early 2000s hip hip jams. So basically ***flawless at all times.
  • The passageway may be open. But if it is not, look for the _secret passageway_ to a small party room on this floor.
  • $5 punch Mondays. Alex is king as bartender, very attentive. Yes to everything, (especially dusek or space juice), Avoid sanyal; wish it had actual chili flakes.
  • The Sanyal Punch has a very spicy punch that lingers on the tongue. Perfect for cold nights.
  • Drink punches by the glass or the bowl at this new Pilsen bar from the folks behind Longman & Eagle.
  • Monday night $5 punch special!
  • The Charles Dickens Punch here isn't just a friendly homage to the prolific writer, but a recipe developed by the icon himself, repurposed for Punch House's winter menu.
  • Try the Charles Dickens Punch, outfitted with all the trappings of a classic hot toddy, but with a double hit of booze. It's likely even Dickens' favorite curmudgeon Scrooge would approve.
  • Hipsters abound but they don't detract from the fantastic craft cocktails and funky atmosphere.
  • Order anything...you really can't go wrong
  • Hipster type bar. All specialty cocktails were variations of a punch... Pretty cool. Decor was great/tacky as well.
  • The gin tea punch at Punch House is one of the 100 best things we drank this year. http://tmout.us/rLOtk
  • Dusek punch! Dark ale makes it.
  • One drink got me tipsy! Worth the $8.
  • Drinks, food, and atmosphere. Midnight they give out free shots. You might find the love of your life here.
  • Fondue!!!!
  • Very hipster sceney and crowded by 8pm Saturday
