A decent pub in Prospect Heights. I went to this place in March 2012 specifically in search of Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier. It was quite empty in the afternoon. There is indoor seating at the bar and at tables, and also an outdoor patio which is nice when the weather is warm. The beer list was certainly decent - this place is probably overlooked in favor of other top bars, but it gets its share of good beers. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.

I usually go in the afternoon but I love that itís less crowded. A real old school bar with great bartenders with good personalities. Wide beer selection. Maybe not as good as Torst or Beer Table but all in all a no-nonsense no fancy pants bar-bar. Fantastic stuff on tap, like beers unavailable in bottle shops.
Good customers (obviously :)). Big fan.
Very laid back and relaxed old school venue.

Washington Commons is a solid bar located in the heart of Prospect Heights. Apparently this is the sister of Fourth Avenue Pub, a leading light in the local bar scene. The ambiance is nice, relaxed. The barís mostly wooden, with a large central bar. The draft selections were decent. Draft highlights included a berliner weiss and Alesmith Speedway. The bottle selections were OK, nothing crazy. Prices were good, service was friendly. Overall, quite nice. Recommended if youíre in the area.
