“Go Big Blue”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

Love that there's a UK bar in Chicago. Good beer for reasonable price while watching the UK game. Great place to be with friends from Kentucky.

“Excellent bartenders”
Reviewed 24 August 2009

We stopped in just doing a little barhopping in the area. We were enticed by the soft glow that the place was emitting. The bartenders were just as inviting. It was pretty busy and I think that's the fastest service I've ever gotten when I walked up to a busy bar. They seemed really on top of things and extremely nice, from who took our order, to who refreshed our drinks, to who got our check ready for us. I highly recommend it.
