Even when it gets packed with the typical Division Street crowd, this Irish pub has an old soul. Antique beer paraphernalia and model ships hang from the ceiling, framed paintings of Chicagoans past dot the walls, and beers are served in frosted glass mugs.

I went to Butch McGuire's during the Christmas season this year and boy was it insane. I mean, if you can handle crowds, then this place is definitely a gem for Christmas. The ceiling looks absolutely insane and you can't take your eyes off of the glorious decorations. You go for the atmosphere--the food and drinks aren't anything worth raving about. We did do dinner there and I really liked the chorizo-topped nachos and the tortilla soup (so spicy), but it was more about the decor and music than anything else.
