Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere! – I love this bar! The atmosphere is great - definitely go around the holidays to see the crazy decorations! They have lights everywhere, and a train running on a track just below the ceiling!

In additon, they have great food specials every day - try the Friday fish and chips! They also have a good selection of beers. Brunch is unbelievable - go there to share with a friend! They have a few kinds of eggs benedict, which all come with 4 eggs on 4 half-english muffins! Or 4-egg omelettes! They also have a $4 special of 2 eggs and bacon and toast.

In the back, they have two dart boards that are almost always available early in the evening, if you go there for dinner and hang out. Though you may want to bring your own darts.

It's just a great, fun bar to hang at!

Thank you for your kind words, and we have solved the parking issue, now you can park at the Indigo Hotel 1255 N Dearborn (1 block north of division st) for just 10$ day or night. Don't forget to ask the bartender for validation.

Best bar on Division – Not only is this the oldest bar on Division St, but it's also one of the best. They always have great food specials, and the environment is great. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the great review especially on the food, our kitchen has been open since 1968 and we still have people coming in and telling us they didn't know we had food. As Helen our cook says, the secret to great food is you have to add a little bit of love everything you make.

Classic Pub – People like to put down pints here, fun-fun place. Ask for Pat the bartender, he'll make your drinks the right way. Open late too, till 4/5am.

The grand old man of Division Street clubs, this joint still dishes up strong drinks and tasty sliders. – The Scene
Shamrocks, shillelaghs and a slew of nautical tchotchkes cover nearly every visible surface in the bar, which claims to have invented the Harvey Wallbanger and is said to have brought together 6,500 couples over the years. Customers are a loud, jovial, rowdy crowd of suits, tourists and young college grads on the make; the weekend brunch bunch is a mellower (more sober) mix.

The Draw
Butch's food menu offers satisfying American bar fare (sliders, soups, salads) and probably the best burger in the Gold Coast. The mini-sliders are terrific, too--bigger than White Castle, cooked rare and topped with grilled onions, on either a traditional bun or on rye bread. The mini-roast pork and mini-Reubens are also tasty. Two or three is enough for a meal.
