Kind of a dive bar with an okay selection. Most of the stuff they had listed was out. Didnít eat there but food looked okay from people around me. Not sure what it is with all these heavy metal bars, but it this "Iím a bad a$$ heavy metal dude who worships the devil" seems a bit pretentious. Forgettable at best.

My last stop in Chicago. Great selection of drafts, both local and import. Bottle list was pretty nice as well. Serivce was terrific, really friendly bartender who chatted to me about all the different drafts and let me taste a bunch fo them. Food was really tasty (avocado/chedder quesidilla). Overall a really nice experience.

Stopped in here for the Hipster Olympics or whatever they called the theme the Friday before Dark Lord Day. They put a bunch of cool stuff on tap, lots of Belgians I havenít seen Stateside before. The place is a shotgun-style bar near DePaul. Parking is a challenge. The service is surly and spotty. The prices are on the high side but itís Chicago and they arenít serving Bud Platinum. I didnít try the food. Cool atmosphere. Dark paint, skulls. Itís exactly what I thought it would be.

A typical chicago bar, and I mean that in a good way. The tap list was solid and so was the bottle list. Didnít have the food so I canít comment on that. The service was nit overly friendly, but at the same time they were attentive. Cool bar, glad I went.

A nice gritty bar with a solid selection of local and other craft beer. Recommended but not life changing.

Dirty and dingy, local option is a fun dive bar that happens to have killer taps and an excellent, fairly priced bottle list. An oddity of this experience was that the staff turned the heavy metal tunage way past eleven as early as quarter to midnight. My long-not-seen pal and myself each lost our voices trying to converse. We didnít mind, but this just as warning to those that may.
