What am I missing? – Maybe I caught it on a bad night, but this place is a snooze button waiting to happen. Just a few people there, bartender could care less. I won't make a special trip back again, that's for sure.
They Know What They're Doing – With all the over pretentious spots in Chicago that tout a hot spot with bad customer service, Elm Street knocks them all down. Friendly staff, excellent drinks, good musix to sing and groove to, a warm and inviting atmosphere that has a good looking crowd. One of my fave pics. Why I go elsewhere is beyond me.
Wednesday PBR Rock Night – ESL is a great destination any night of the week. The staff is down-to-earth and fun and the music never disappoints. Be sure to check out Wednesday nights for $2 PBR and PBR Light Cans and impromptu open mike sessions from the staff. FYI: Don't be surprised if your PBR is comped...the rep likes to stop in and reward PBR drinkers with a few cans on her tab. On the weekends, I recommend heading out early to snag a seat at the bar.
Gold Coast hangout glams up dive-bar style. – In Short
This Gold Coast nightspot celebrates laid-back dive-bar culture smack in glitz central. Glass-topped whiskey barrels blend with loungy features like plasma TVs, a "floating" ceiling, sky-lit rooms, leather-cushioned walls and plush couches. Gals slurp Jell-O shots or sip champagne-infused cocktails served in nine-ounce flutes, while trucker hat-sporting dudes munch trail mix, jerky and chips and wash 'em down with PBRs.
HANG AROUND ELM STREET FOR A FEW HOURS & YOU'LL SEE WHY IT'S THE HOT SPOT.
WHETHER YOUR IMPRESSED BY LOCAL SPORTS STARS & CELEBRITIES OR THE CAST OF A MOVIE BEING SHOT IN TOWN, IT'S STILL VERY DOWN TO EARTH...IT NEVER LETS YOU DOWN.
Dave G – Place is cool as hell...when did it open? I live in the Gold Coast (Oak and Rush) and all of a sudden it just popped up. Friends dragged me there and had a great time. Go before it gets too hot...trust me, it will.
