This Hyde Park dive is frequented by only the more adventurous U. of C. students; a sign on the door threatens to deny entrance to those under 23, though it’s seldom enforced. The clientele is as diverse as the decor, which includes perfunctory nods to Irish pride, a fresco of the New York skyline, film stills from the 1920s and a jukebox heavy on R&B and soul. The liquor selection is limited, but pitchers are cheap, and there’s an order-through window to the pizza and chicken joint next door.
