  • The bartenders know what's up. Appreciate the art they bestow.
  • Amazing drinks. The bartenders know their business.
  • The fireplace is located outdoors and it's a toasty and popular spot for the constant crowds at this Humboldt Park cocktail palace. Warm up to the fire with a cup of something delicious.
  • They have tequila Ocho! Best tequila in the world. Also a really good Mezcal called Pierde Almas. And best of all, you can make any drink spicy with this awesome Ancho Reyes.
  • It's classy with a dive bar feel. Bring your cash and order yourself the Sportsman's Cocktail. It will never disappoint.
  • Cash-only chill dive that has cheap beer and expensive cocktails.
  • Cash only.
  • Go sit outside. It's a great patio in the back.
  • Runner up for Bar of the Year presented by Hendrick's Gin, and runner up for Best Bar Family presented by Glenfiddich Scotch at the 2017 Time Out Chicago Bar Awards.
  • Great spot. If its nice out head straight to the back yard.
  • Order your favorite cocktail or one of the four on offer from the daily menu. Dont let the casual attitude, vintage taxidermy or $4 High Lifes on the patio fool you drinks here are taken seriously.
  • Overrated and overpriced. They sell a can of tecate with a shot of mezcal for $10. That doesn't take creativity.
  • Really nice patio in the back too, when the weather cooperates.
  • Despite the pretense-free atmosphere and limited drink menu (four cocktails are listed each night), the bartenders are pros and can make pretty much anything you want.
  • Cocktails.
  • I really don't see the appeal of this place. I've been there a few times and it just wasn't all that great.
  • CASH ONLY. Besides that, hang out on the patio and share the table with other folks. Everyone is nice and will share. Mini bar outside too with good music. Inside gets a bit crammed though.
  • Really nice drinks, cash only. Great patio
  • Small bar that's always completely packed in the winter, so come during summer to spill out onto the porch. Checkers boards in the booths inside if you happen to snag one!
  • Easy going vibe. Love the table carved checker boards
