Laying claim to being Lincoln Park's oldest Irish pub isn't what made us fall for this bar. Instead, it was the charming, airy space with exposed brick, roaring fireplace and original artwork. Of course, having 17 taps (two dedicated to Guinness) on hand didn't hurt either. If you can, pop in on a slower night when the joint isn't overrun with Trixies.
