The Low Down


Save Money: Off-peak nights, Tuesday through Thursday, feature food and drink specials.

When to Go: Lines to get in often extend down Clark Street on Friday and Saturday nights and around Cubs games.

Know Before You Go: Fall Hours (Labor Day through Memorial Day) are: Wed-Fri 5pm-2am; Sat 5pm-3am (10am opening on Iowa game days). The restaurant is closed Sunday through Tuesday when the Cubs are away, and open two hours before Cubs home games.

Know Before You Go: This spot usually stays packed until last call on weekends--like its multitude of popular neighbors--which means major traffic snarls and cab-wrangling come 2am.
