Hip Pilsen bar filled with reclaimed design details. – Nearby the Chicago Arts District neighborhood, this jumping, multi-roomed watering hole and performance space is filled with odd-ball salvaged materials circa before the hipster crowd's time. The decks of old pinball machines add interest to booths, which are fashioned out of graffiti-scrawled chem lab tables. The main bar, its top a vintage bowling lane, gives way to a caged-in, elevated DJ booth and booths made from woven seat belts. In a space this wacky, the menu has to hold interest, and it doesn't disappoint. Classic pub grub (nachos, spinach-artichoke dip) is augmented by empanadas, a Reuben-style brat served on a baguette and a Monte Cristo with cranberry aioli.
Really great, eclectic decor – I went here a couple of weeks ago for the first time and I was really impressed. The seats in the booths are made of seatbelts, the railings are from the New York City subway, and the dj booth is an old pinball machine...just to name a few. The place is rather large and all of the decor is really unique. The staff is pretty nice. Its just an overall artsy place. The bar food is pretty good, they have veggie tempura, empanadas, hummus, etc. Check it out!
