This speakeasy-esque space—a vacuous room, lined with booths and sprinkled with tables and chairs—is a nightly respite for local artists. The Tater Tots and mac and cheese are greasy must-haves—wash ’em down with a $2 PBR. There’s free jazz on Mondays, and don’t miss the photo booth tucked in the back corner.

While I still pine for the days when you could stop by Skylark and see local jazz luminaries like Jeff Parker perform, this nondescript dive is still a nice place to drink. The beers on tap are mostly local and the tater tots (with assorted dipping sauces) are always delicious.

The Skylark is a great dive bar in Pilsen. Their enormous tater tots appetizer is great when you’re in the mood for greasy, late night snacks. Their food menu is simple, well priced, and tasty, if you are in the mood to stop by for dinner. The photobooth is perfect for commemorating that you’ve been traveled past the South Loop. The beer list is all under $6, which makes this a great stop anytime. While it is cash only, there is an ATM inside.

Really like the bartenders, they are fun. This was our first time there and we were a bit early and there wasn't much of a crowd, but by 9 it was packed. Parking is wacky but you can usually park closer to Canal to find a spot that wont get you towed are ticketed.
