Bernice's Tavern

The exterior might scream old-man bar, but this dive is a diamond in the rough. The proximity to both the Cell and the Zhou B Art Center means you might just find a debate at the jukebox between South Side regulars angling for “We Are the Champions” and mop-topped hipsters searching for the new No Age record. But Bernice’s welcomes them all with $2 PBRs, assorted imports, local acoustic acts on Saturdays and open mics every Thursday.

Fun place to go especially for stingo aka bingo. One of the owners Steve makes it fun and its definitely a unique place to grab some beers and relax.

Stingo Stingo!! Bernice's son, Steve, runs this divey dive bar with unbelievably cheap drinks and a diverse (in age, race, gender and attitude) crowd. Go Wednesday nights for Steve's Bingo (STINGO) and you can win anything from a giant jar of cheese balls to Riot fest tickets.
