A silver disco ball throws bright spots onto tomato-red walls and a mini karaoke stage at one of the longest-standing Polish joints in this area. Cocktails may be 50 cents more during Saturday night karaoke, but a penny-pincher special can be had on nearly every other night of the week (especially if you’re into kamikazes). Go quick before this one goes the way of Wicker Park.

I've been there many times and love how easy it is to fit in. You meet great people, the drinks are great!! Amazing prices!! This is a gem. Low key and fun to hang out at.


Bialystok is a surprising neighborhood bar off the beaten path with some Polish beers available, plus darts and plenty of hightop tables to sit back and relax. Going there on a Friday is quiet but with good service—I've heard Saturdays get really busy with karaoke.
