Pepper Canister is a divey dive. I still remember the days when you walked in the doors and into a cloud of smoke. Thank goodness those days are behind us, and now we can just enjoy a pint and a shot.

Great lunch or after work spot – I've been here several times after work for drinks. It's a great dark and cozy spot with smoking in the back and a non-smoking area in the front. It's always been a good time, although it can sometimes get outrageously expensive with a group (but what place can't). I was surprised to find they had really great food though. I now go about once a month with co-workers to get one of the very good salads and appetizers they offer.

Religious-themed River North pub popular for after-work dinner and drinks. – The Scene
Borrowing the unusual nickname of a Dublin church, this loungey pub from Garrett Ripley's owners opens beyond its stark black and red exterior into an expansive, high-ceilinged room thronged by area 9-to-5ers and younger trendsters. The clamor of the crowd and blasting alternative music energizes the reverent, candle-lit brick space.

The Draw
A long, high table parallel to the bar accommodates after-work groups and those comfortable talking to strangers; three storefront booths, a back cubby and a cram of tables throughout provide more intimacy. Conscientious staffers deliver a half-dozen always-cold drafts and specialty cocktails like the casual fling. A solid food menu reflects Pepper Canister's heritage, both geographic and spiritual--mostly traditional European offerings are served as "angelic starters," "heavenly sandwiches," "ecclesiastic entrees" and such. The creamy, cheese and veggie-based martyr's dip makes a great starter for dinners like zesty lemon chicken with colcannon.

Best Beer and Bar Food – This place has the best Boddingtons and their burgers are to die for! My boyfriend loves the scotch eggs and all of the English food including authentic bacon and sausages.

Always a ton of fun! – Great place to take your friends for happy hour! It always helps when the wait staff provides not only excellent service but has a huge authentic smile behind it. They are all for everyone having a good time, and if you're not they'll make sure you do. You'll always find a good mix of people as well. I definitely would recommend this place!
