The Low Down


Save Money: The bar has good daily specials, like domestic drafts for under two bucks and wings for under one. But beware: All deals are off on Cubs home-game days. Call ahead for more info.

Know Before You Go: The open room boasts an elevated stage for live music, but the view can be marred if you wind up behind one of the roof supports.

Look Good: Three separate rooms are available for parties of 50 to 200, or the entire bar (which can accommodate 1,600) can be yours. Food options, sound systems, TVs and private entrances are just a few of the perks.
