While a photo booth or even liquor stores can add a lot of charm to a bar, a great jukebox has the ability to transform another predictable night out into a small-scale neighborhood bash. So get ready to party it up with local barflies at these (mostly dive) bars with the city's best jukeboxes.

Chicago bars with a jukebox
While the new sign outside now reads “GMan Tavern,” this Wrigley bar remains the Gingerman Tavern in our hearts. It attracts many more Metro-loving rockers than cargo shorts–wearing bros, and the jukebox reflects the clientele with selections from bands such as Broken Social Scene and the Strokes.
This Andersonville stalwart continually restocks its fantastic CD jukebox with fresh indie picks. Lately, it's records like Mac Demarco, TV on the Radio, D'Angelo and Real Estate. The player is so popular, it has its own Twitter handle. Pop in enough at this cozy Scandivanian dive, and you'll hardly need blogs and Spotify.
