The T isn’t typically where we go to turn up (unless we’re hitting karaoke nights on Thursdays). But when we want a break from the buzzing Midtown spots that feel more clubby, we head to Grant Park so we can actually hear our friends talk. Their location (inside a small strip mall that also houses a martial arts studio and a nail salon) feels a little more low-key and private. It’s one small, almost-never crowded room with a rectangular bar in the center, a lone pool table in the back, and a purple glow coming from the string lights on the ceiling. Their takeout-only kitchen, serviced by Boulevard Burgers and Bites, offers decent burgers and wraps in case you hit the beer a little too hard.
