A cool cocktail bar in Lincoln Park that’s different from most of the other college-fueled bars around. The first floor is usually pretty loud and crowded, while the upstairs is more of a lounge-like space that’s a quieter spot to sit and hang. Barrelhouse Flat also has a limited but quality food menu, so you can grab some basics like a burger or grilled cheese to go along with your drinks.
