Finding this aptly named bar can be a major challenge. Don't even attempt to take public transportation here; just get in a cab (your taxi driver will know where it is) and look for the glowing "Old Style Beer" sign that's a beacon of light in this warehousey no-man's-land. It's quite literally a hole in the wall: Faded beer cans rust on the windowsills, and the backroom "lounge," with its thrift store–quality furniture and makeshift "stage," feels more like a college dorm room than a bar displaced Chicagoans get all misty-eyed about. But the legendary place is also ground zero for the city's fertile alternative country/postpunk music scene. There's live music every night; local outfit Devil in a Woodpile plays a raucous mix of ragtime, acoustic blues, and jug tunes with no cover charge every Tuesday. If members of your party prefer fancy drinks, head elsewhere; there's a limited selection of spirits here. Cans of PBR, however, are a mere $2 (and worth every penny).

Open Tuesdays 7 pm to 2 am, Wednesdays through Fridays 4 pm to 2 am, Saturdays 7 pm to 3 am.
