PEOPLE ARE TALKING

Depending on the night of the week, this can be a hipster bar, an old-man bar, or anything in between. There’s live music every night, a decent selection of beer on tap, and a low-key atmosphere.

- Julia Thiel, The Reader

This Bucktown bar has had an artistic soul since it opened in 1988--there are gallery shows and free comedy and music every night--Chicago's 9 Coolest Murals.

- PureWow

Gallery isn't your everyday watering hole. The place is buzzing with musicians, artists, old dudes playing checkers, and twentysomthings downing (still $2) PBRs.

- Maggie Hennessy, Inside Hook

PATTY VACCARELLA

Lovely, funky space! Great stage and the bartenders are helpful. Nice beer list with reasonable prices. Perfect dive bar!

ROBERT E. JOHNSON III

Great place to listen to music or comedy and pretty cheap drinks. A great crowd of cool artists and free thinkers. It was a night to remember.

This place not only changed my life, it taught me the meaning of it!
