Like a secret chamber of debauchery, the red door to this State Street bar reveals no sign of what’s inside. Turns out it’s a small, dark space that serves cheap beers and cans bottles out of a refrigerated case (you can also get them to go). The stools feel like they might collapse beneath you, but this is easily the most unpretentious bar in River North.
