DePaul students, hospital staff and neighborhood urban professionals alike belly up at this combo spot. Decent bar food, foosball, pool and darts dominate downstairs at the Lion Head, where it's impossible not to find yourself facing one of the two dozen plasma and big-screen TVs. Upstairs, the Apartment sports a corny (yet comfy) club atmosphere with its beds, couches and recliners, which get plenty of use on weekends when the place is packed assholes-to-elbows with singles.

This is The Apartment's slightly less creepy older brother, conveniently located downstairs. At least they have a semblance of a craft beer selection, popcorn, and bar games. Otherwise, still the same drunk, underage college crowd and stench I tend to avoid at all costs. 

This bar is full of people who say yes to Fireball way too often. I'd recommend staying downstairs, grabbing a beer at the bar and playing a game of darts.
