Bangers and Lace allows me to participate in one of my favorite Chicago summer activities - drinking beer outside. With a large tap selection and a fair amount of bottles as well, this would have the beginnings of a great beer bar. The best part about the beer menu is the Six Pack, were you can get 6 2 oz. samples for $9, normally of an interesting mix of beers. Right now, I think it is a few steps away from being in the category of great beer bars I would visit regularly. The service is all right, although I have normally gone during off-peak hours, so that might have an impact. The prices on the tap list are coincidentally all $1 too expensive for an equal or smaller pour than other bars around. The food leads me to the same conclusion - there is nothing inherently bad about the quality, but I am left wondering why it costs so much, considering it is pretty average. Mostly consisting of sausage products, the menu is also not very substantial. This is the type of place I will head if they have something special on tap, but it will not become one of my regulars.

Been here quite a few times. Very nice beer selection on tap. Good location with some good people watching, especially if you can sit outside during the summer. I havenít had a ton of the food on the menu, but what I did order I enjoyed.

Iíve been to bangers&lace several times now and really enjoy it. They usually have around 25 beers on tap with the beers being pretty wide and diverse. Their bottle list was really good and the prices were very fair. I was able to get a bottle of bam noire for $20. The draft list is a bit more on the expensive side, but Iím more than willing to pay since the selection is so good. The service has generally been pretty good when Iíve come here. I havenít been here when itís real busy, but Iíve never had a problem getting a beer when needed

Very cool environment late Friday, reminds of The Shining somehow with the textured white ceiling, single dim globe-lit room, black and white maybe, fitting 40-50 with a 20 person bar and one odd large table in the center of the room. Mediocre Belgian tap selection, better bottle list, only one with Cantillon that I saw in Chicago. The atmosphere is really cool, location decent, and good lambic is not severely overpriced (16-17 for 12oz).

Stopped in on the way to FoBAB and was so impressed I made a point to stop in again on the way back to the hotel. A very nice tap selection and even the bottle selection seemed to have something new to try as well. We had a brunch in the morning with Kevin (Pailhead) and both of us thought it hit the spot and then some. My pigs in the blanket was very good. In the evening I had the Venison sandwich that was okay (too much fig and black currants) but the plate of onion rings rocked. Kevin liked his German sandwich and plate of fries. Timely service and good vibe. How did I not know about this place before? Easy access from the Blue Line... I am adding this to my list of places to must go in Chicago.

This place is great. The ambiance is great with a casual atmosphere. I have never been there when it is super busy, but I could imagine that is pretty comfortable as well, as the layout seems to make a lot of sense. The bartenders are quick, and seem to know what they are talking about. As far as selection is concerned, there is always at least one draft that I have never seen in the city before, and the bottle selection is not massive, but of very high quality and well priced. I havenít tried the food, but I hear that it is pretty solid. Oh yeah, it is awesome to be able to try all of the beers with the smaller pours. Overall, I believe that this is on par with the best beer bars in Chicago.

Cool, dark, hip, smallish bar with very good small plates of food which is very reasonably priced. Beer prices are in line with the neighborhood. Service has always been attentive without being over-bearing. Just the way I like it. Outdoor patio is usually bumping when the weather is nice, and bar can be crowded at peak times. You can always expect to find interesting things on tap at Bangers and Lace. You can expect about half of those interesting things to taste good. Either know what youíre getting in to, or ask for a sample.

Finally made it down here and gotta say, was impressed by the draft list. Pretty heavy on imports, kind of reminds me of the list at Local Option. Also has a fair number of locals as well. Food is definitely solid and worth it. Ambience is a bit meh as it was full of tools when I showed up and the service could use some work. Still, pretty solid overall and worth it for the beer. The $2 samplers and the 6 pack of samplers are a nice touch.

Was thoroughly impressed when I stopped in here. My girlfriend moved right down the street and will be frequenting here when ever I visit. Havenít tried the food yet, but the ambiance is nice and laid back although a bit dark at night. A great outside seating area if you can grab a seat... Selection was top of the line and two dollar samplers of any beer if you have the urge to tick. Service was a bit slow but still a great bar IMO.
