Lincoln Park isn’t a neighborhood with a ton of character-heavy dives, which makes Rose’s extra special. There are couches that are almost certainly older than the ones in your parents’ basement, along with a pool table, a killer jukebox, free pretzels (or Bugles, depending on the night), and Christmas lights strung up year-round. Plan on ordering pitchers of beer or cocktails with two ingredients or less and you’ll have an excellent time. It’s cash only, so keep that in mind before you go.
