THE WORST BAR EVER!!! – Like your beer nice and warm? This is the place to go! I'd like to tell you how much they charge, but the staff doesn't know half the time. You can place the same drink order 3 times and pay 3 different prices. They ILLEGALLY RAISE DRINK PRICES AT NIGHT and say the money is for the bands but they don't get it . The owner says "How much would you be paying downtown?" Well, downtown bars have some degree of class and don't look and smell like a junkyard!
The filth of this place goes from the washrooms (the women's room doesn't have the toilet mounted to the floor, very often overflows and there are WORMS EATING THE ROTTING WOOD FLOOR), to the stools (most are beaten to a pulp held together with tape and uncomfortable), to the bar (ever hear of a bar rag?), to the garnishments (overripe and BROWN), to the glassware. If you are lucky you MIGHT get a glass without lipstick or grease on it at no extra charge. Even the ICE IS BAD!!! Ever have a gin and tonic with black muck on the ice cubes? It's quite the experience.
Your best bet for entertainment here is on a night the bands DON'T show up because the music sucks. Its usually thrash bands playing their very first show before moving on to a better venue with a decent stage and sound. Or, if you are adventureous, ask the owner about the smoking ban. He'll go on and on hhow it's hurt his business and everybody in the city goes to Indiana to drink. Being in this place made me wish I was in Indiana. Watching TV would have been nice, but they only have 2 small sets at opposite ends of the bar and if yo aren't right in front of it you won't see a thing. I couldn't imagine trying to watch a sporting thing here.
If you aren't white and talk on a cell phone the owner will tell you that you are a drug dealer selling drugs in his bar. The sick thing is that drugs wouldn't even make this place worth walking into. I'd rather share a bottle of Mad Dog with a bum that has gum disease
perfection incarnate – A real class act. Large, large mugs with mead and spirit. All too rare, this place, in the infernal quietude of fern bars and frathouses that make up the miserable Chicago bar landscape.
Service is charismatic and sweet, like a derailed Baptist Revival in Helena. The music is at the Schoenberg end of rock and roll, for the most part. Dissonance is usually given free reign. The place looks as if it extends to the infinite, like the giddy dream of Renaissance perspective painting. They got Pabst, too.
Once the city repeals the brutal smoking ban, which corrals all into concentration camps in front of our beloved watering holes, I swear to never leave the Mutiny.
It is said that the Yezidi of the Middle East cannot leave an area once a peculiar magic circle is drawn around their feet. Call me a Yezid and the circle, the Mutiny.
$5.50 32-oz.'ers!! – pretty divey, but worth the free cover every night. a lot of punk rockers, or what's left of them anyway. bands every night, mostly "punk"-style music but there are many in-betweeners.
Batton Down The Hatches !! – This is one of the BEST bars in Bucktown - Logan Square that features LIVE Bands that are Local Favorites or the White Line Feaver bands that hit the road hitting bars along the way .. One of the last Good Bars in the USA that gives bands a break they need
Local bands rock, while Logan Square patrons drink cheap, at one of the city's most charming dive bars. – Cruddy, but heavenly so; the decor in this dilapidated two-room bar consists of a historic photo, brick walls, innumerable dart-throwing trophies and ceiling tiles painted by local artists. The beat-up floor seems to abruptly stop and start, and the back bar is piled high with kegs. A welcoming crowd ranges from laid-back young rockers and neighborhood barflies to a few decked-out couples seeking adventure. In the rear room, local indie, funk and metal bands plug in and get loud on the small stage.
