One of the city’s best spots for rock & roll doesn’t even have a stage. Instead, this Lincoln Park favorite has one of the best jukeboxes in town for the main room (so you can play DJ Fridays and Saturdays) and hires DJs for Sunday through Thursday who know their Buzzcocks from their Bullocks. Add an insane whiskey selection, more than 300 beers (Belgian, microbrews, seasonals) and frequent free movie nights, and you have a bar to call home.

It makes me happy to know that a joint as rock-n-roll as Delilah's can survive amid the nail boutiques and bro bars of Lincoln Park. With an impressive selection of whiskey and beer and thrice-weekly movie screenings that run the gamut from music documentaries to obscure grindhouse flicks, the place has a personality all its own.
Punk is alive and well in Lincoln Park because of this bar. Upstairs, you can play pool and knock back a few shots. Downstairs, you can stand elbow-to-elbow with other drunk folks as you look at the thousands of stickers and garb on the walls.
