The jukebox plays Neil Young, the craft-beer selection is serious, and the kitchen turns out bar food with occasional surprises, such as an appetizer of cevapi (hand-formed beef-lamb-and-pork patties served with tzatziki and pita). But don’t let the Aberdeen’s quiet, residential location fool you: The vibe is industrial-rocker (garage doors, dark wood), and the curt bartender takes very little bullshit.

I strolled in here on my way from a wedding to an afterparty nearby with some of the other guys attending the wedding. We were tasked with picking up beer for the after party (on foot), but there was nowhere to buy in the vicinity! Instead, we decided to just grab a beer at Aberdeen Tap because it was the only thing we passed that didn't look dead. One beer turned into three, and all the women wondering where we went! We were not disappointed. The tap selection was great and affordable. The bartenders were friendly and efficient. The place was packed, but we found a few stools at the end of the bar. The place was large enough to hold the crowd and still get drinks out in time without forming a huge wait. Luckily, despite being across the highway from River North, this place doesn't even have a smidgen of pretentionsness you'll find closeby. Just an fun, neighborhood bar!

Gotta come back and try the food! Chee-vaps, duck sandwich, and gator sausage all look amazing.
