Great place to hang out pre or post 2nd city shows. Service is good and even a nice patio if the weather holds out. Directly across the street.

Went here with two other couples before heading up to Wrigley. Had some good beers and some fine conversation. The service was excellent and lots of TV's to watch the games. There is a beautiful space in the back that is terrific.

You grab your own seat, either in the pub itself or outdoors in the front or back. Televisions have sporting events playing. Wait staff work hard to keep up with everyone's orders. After choosing beers from an extensive list, we checked out the food options....More
