Poitin Stil

ItIt’s pronounced “poo-cheen still” (Gaelic for moonshine), but take the bartenders’ cue and call it “the Stil.” This Rogers Park pub is the antithesis of its former inhabitant, Charmers, the city’s oldest, grittiest and emptiest gay bar: It’s bright and bustling, there’s often live music, and friendly bartenders pour a proper Guinness. Rest assured, nostalgists: Charmers’ beautiful Art Deco bar remains intact.
