Maria's Packaged Goods and Community Bar

Ed Marszewski—editor-publisher of Lumpen, festival host, gallerist and general Chicago indie-art-world guy-around-town—and his brother, Mike, remodeled and renamed Kaplan’s Liquors, the Bridgeport bar that was owned and operated since 1986 by their mother, Maria. The chandeliers built out of bottles and the 300-plus microbrews are notable, but the real standout feature is the welcoming scene: People like each other here.

Absolutely love Maria's in Bridgeport. They have an awesome selection of craft cocktails and beers on draft. They have a fantastic patio and, not to mention, Kimski just opened next door, meaning delicious food delivered to your table. If you're in the neighborhood, this is a must!

This place is very cool!

Amazing selection, attention to ingredients, such as locally sourced items. Really nice people, and lots of fun stuff to look at.

The front is a liquor store with a great selection, and you can enter the back bar through one of the cooler doors, which looks like it was built to be a speak easy!
