Bar crawling in Chicago

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.

  1. You do pub crawls in cities in which you don’t live, and then write about them? Since when? Come back out to Los Angeles/OC and we’ll do the Hollywood pub crawl from a few years ago again. You know…the out-of-the-way-dive-bars-and-obscure-music-club crawl.

    Come to think of it…I haven’t done that one myself in almost a year. Damn, I’m overdue…
