Pub Crawl NYC recently visited Chicago. Here are some of the bar hopping highlights from our trip to the Windy City.
Berghoff – German restaurant with a large bar area. A mix of house brews and some imports. Solid spot with good food, but since it’s located in The Loop, it closes at 9pm most nights
Elephant & Castle – the chain English-style pub. Even though it’s a chain, we like this place because it does not have a location in NYC, and therefore don’t get to it too often. Tap beers are a mix of standard imports and macro brews, but there area a few local beers featured as well.
Poag Mahone’s – Irish Pub that offers nearly two dozen tap beers. This place offers a better mix of local and regional craft beers than Elephant & Castle. Unfortunately, due to its location in The Loop, Poag’s also closes rather early.
O’Neil’s on Wells – Dive-y sports bar that also offers pizza-by-the-slice.
