Great place to go if you don't have an attitude problem – BAR is a great place to go for something different. From the clientel, which ranges from the young twenties to the young-at-heart fifty-somethings and yes some suburbanites and tourists, and the complete variety of music, everyone is satisfied. Of course you are not going to like it if you are going out for a $15 specialty martini and want to lounge around, see and be seen,,,that's not what bar is all about. Its about leaving the attitude at the door and having a great time. The staff is great looking and is one of the friendliest I have encountered in Chicago. They are there to make sure you have a great time and I have never been disappointed. I highly recommend BAR Chicago to anyone who just wants to have a good time without the frills... and by the way, the bathroom attendants are great! They are not trying to be trendy, they are there to make sure you are taken care of.

avoid this bar if you are not in college – This bar is just for tourists and college kids (or those who never went to college). For those of you who have gotten binge drinking out of your system, avoid this joint at all costs.

Good place for a rowdy time – If you want to dance on top of bar and have a bartender pour drinks in your mouth, then this is the place to go. It's a great place to dance to the latest music and have a no frills good time

a crazy wild time – place does not attempt to be classy. if youre looking for classy, go elsewhere. bartenders will stand on the bar and pour the booze down your throat. girls dance on top of bars. bump and grind non stop. great place to go if you r looking to hook up. not a sit down, sip a tini on the couch type place. if youre looking for a wild, crazy night with some stories, head over here. the staff is great too, top notch.

Hard-core partiers shoot, shake it and score at this raucous Gold Coast bar. – The Scene
Tourists, conventioneers, college students and clubbers looking for a wild night head to Bar Chicago, a second-floor club with a post-collegiate anti-style that fits right in with other Rush-and-Division bars. Ritualized, unrestrained outrageousness is practiced nightly and encouraged by the regulars and staff.

The Draw
Besides shot ceremonies for the whole house, another tradition is that women are encouraged to shake it atop the bar--and make no mistake, they do. If at least a dozen aren't working it up there, this place is still just warming up. Populist DJing from a central booth means dancers can sing along with "Come On Eileen" or bump to lascivious dance-floor classics like "Baby Got Back." There's no draft beer, but the full bar serves 10 bottled varieties, plus all the popular cocktails.

Not so much – A great place to meet singles if you want a no-strings attached hook up.

Fun Place to Party ! – This place is a great time. It is perfect to satisfy large groups because there is so much to offer. You can dance, sit and drink, or jsut hang at the bar and people watch. Always packed with a great crowd and I have always had so much fun. Great place to stop with large groups !

Unpretentious? Not at all. – This place isn't terrible, and the women are pretty good looking although totally out of most guys leagues... and they know it. If you can get a "party" go, because the free admission and hour of free beer, which by the way was old and tasted like crap, is worth it (guys, either bring a girl or flash some tip money if you don't want to wait 20 minutes to get the bartenders attention). For a place that claims to be unpretentious, why do they have a bathroom attendant? This place tries to be hip and trendy without "being" hip and trendy. If you are looking for this sort of place, go to the Roadhouse.
