The Low Down
Save Money: Playing on the idea of ringing the doorbell at a house party, the Apartment hosts its double entendre "Buzz Me Up" special on Thursdays, when all drinks are half price.
When to Go: TVs beckon during the day, but recede into the ceiling at night. (Translation: A safe date spot, ladies, as long as you avoid the PlayStation upstairs.)
Parking: Park in the Lincoln Park Hospital garage and get your ticket validated at the bar to pay only $5.
