Time Out says

This shot-and-a beer joint, located across the street from the Hegewisch South Shore Line stop, seems to have picked a date sometime around the midcentury and stuck with it. The grandparents of owner Dean Ubik bought the building in 1921, and it operated as a speakeasy during Prohibition, when "working girls" rented rooms upstairs. The tavern, last rehabbed in 1949, features sparkly gold vinyl booths and a gorgeaous Art Deco bar. Bud Light and AmberBock are on tap ($1.55 per pint), and vintage ads for the train line adorn the walls. And check out the collection of black-and-white family photos on the wall, including pictures of Ubik's mom's bowling team from the 50's.
