I never heard of a bartender ask people for tips, and then have people kick outed because they did not tip. Place is a absolute DUMP!
WORST BAR IN THE WORLD!!!!! DOORMEN ARE ON A POWER TRIP IN A BAR NOT COOL ENOUGH TO DESERVE IT! – We went to Beaumonts after a night out with friends and found a line around the block. With three people collecting money at the door, I tried approaching the only girl to ask if it was possible to use the ladie's room and come back out. Just as I got to her, a security guard yanked my arm and pulled me back. I told him I just had a questionand he told me she was too busy collecting cash to deal with me. Having no choice, I explained to him that I needed to use the restroom and asked if there was a way I could do that. He told me there wasn't and that I needed to get back in line. After waiting for about twenty minutes, I couldn't wait anymore. I appraoched another secutirty guard and explained that I REALLY needed to use the ladies' room. Finally he told me I had five minutes. He held me ID, threatening to send guards in after me if I hadn't come out. I rushed in and was out in far less than my alotted time. When I came out, I realized my friends had been let in without me. I asked the same security guard if he thought it was possible he had let my 6'7", red-headed, husband in while I was in the restroom. He told me he hadn't and that I should go check the other lines. After I did, I confrimed that he'd been let in while I was in the restroom. Eventually, he took my ID telling me that if I found my husband in under five minutes he'd let me in for free. When I walked in the door, I found him waiting. I pulled him out and showed him to the doorman. He handed me my ID and told us we owed him $14- $7 cover each. I reminded him that my husband had already paid and he had told me I could get in for free. He began yelling at me but let me into the bar after paying the cover. A few minutes later, I was accosted by three security guards telling us we had to leave. I grew up in the south and pride myself on being polite, I also spent time in Manhattan and understand demading doormen. I have NEVER been treated so disrespectfully for a bar that was so generally lame. YUCK!
I've never been so lied to... – This place was all lies from the first minute. There are two signs posted outside that claim that this place is a "Smoke Free Environment". However, even the manager was smoking all night. Then, our tab came and it was obviously inflated. They told us they didn't have glasses and served us in tiny plastic cups, but charged us the prices for regular drinks anyway. At the end of the evening, we realize there were overcharges and when we tried to get a legitimate breakdown of our tab they refused to create one. Eventually, they admitted there was an overcharge and printed us a new tab, which was still much higher than the total we had calculated with the bar tender.
not for me – if you're fresh out of college, single, white and broke, you'll probably love this place. if you don't fit under the previously mentioned, don't bother going. you've been warned!
Can this high-energy Lincoln Park institution continue to pack 'em in? – The Scene
Call it a party bar, a frat party or swinging singles soiree. The energy's nonstop at this Lincoln Park destination open since 1981. Brace for the sight of post-collegiate types gulping down shots before staggering out to the dance floor. The front room is composed of a large, L-shaped bar and a small dance floor complete with brass rail, while the back area has a warehouse feel with additional dancing space. On the plus side, the worn look is anything but intimidating to young clubgoers.
As for late night dance clubs in the Lincoln Park 'hood, this is it. When patrons from the area's 2am bars (Bar 3, John Barleycorn, Kincade's, Sauce) trek here, things really get jumpin'.
Fun afterhours bar! – Like others have said... very cheesy but very fun. Always will meet someone there, probably/hopefully will not be someone you will want to bring home to mom though.
