With its Z-brick walls, cast-iron radiators providing some good Chicago-style heat and a decent-enough pool table, Syrena's has the feel of your best Ukrainian bud's basement lounge. Kick back and enjoy a zimne piwo (cold beer) for under two bucks while sitting at the lacquered bar, or play some tunes on the digital jukebox, or just soak up the floor show of an extremely diligent bartender whose cleanliness rivals any suburban housewife we know.
