Archie’s is a pretty straightforward corner bar with a pool table, a great jukebox, and plenty of cheap beer. But the main thing that sets it apart from other Chicago dives is that it’s dog-friendly. There are lots of nights where there will be just as many Good Boys and Good Girls as barflies here, and that makes it an ideal place to drink in our book.
