Portage Park

If authentic Irish can be defined by the lack of outwardly Irish stuff, then this Portage Park corner pub hits the mark. During the week you'll find local dudes draining pints at the bar, but the weekends see younger crowds clogging up the aisle and the adjoining room. Live entertainment amounts to covers by soloists and the occasional scuffle.
