Description: Good Friends.. Good TimesThe Bar Below is all about having a drink and some food in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. We strive to be your neighborhood bar in downtown Chicago. We offer a great selection of beer and cocktails at some of the best prices in the loop, or Chicago for that matter. We try to make this the kind of place that you would see in any part of the city, the kind of place we want to drink at. All of the great things that make Chicago our home are right outside the door, without any of the pretension and price that you might find with other bars in the loop. Come in and see us. Raise your glass, you know we are.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My wife and I just happened upon this place on a Saturday afternoon. The sign out front advertised comfortable couches and fireplace. We were looking to kill some time and had a drink and an order of pretzel bites. Our drinks were very reasonably priced for downtown Chicago. We had a beer and a call drink for $11. Unheard of for downtown. The pretzels were soft and both sauces were good. If we are ever looking to kill some time again, we defintely will stop.
