The neighborhood bar attracts a crowd from far beyond Humboldt Park borders, thanks to a funky, taxidermy-filled interior; large backyard patio with a summer bar and string lights; and cheap beer and shots. The lowlife, a shot of whiskey or a pull from the amaro machine, (like the old Jäger machines), plus a High Life is just $5, and is more consistent than the ever-rotating list of cocktails. It's cash only, and you can also bring your own food in, though the Tamale Guy will also likely make an appearance for late-night snacking.

It's hard to say what the best part of Sportsman's club is: the beer garden or the cocktails. If you're not up for a $10 drink, you can always sip on some cheap Miller High Life bottles on the patio and sink into the night.

Well made, simple but always interesting drinks that change daily, a fun beer list, an amaro machine with housemade amaro that changes daily, a HUGE patio that does weekly bbqs during the summer, an all star cast of bartenders behind the bar, what more could you want? 

Oh yeah, they have all the PvWs and all the BTACs, so you can do a vertical and try all the stuff your liquor store is sold out of before they even come in.  Just remember to try the best stuff first - by the time you get to pour 5 you start to get a little blurry.

If you come here late enough, you may run into some of your favorite bartenders—Sportsman is a favored North Side industry post-shift hang. Show up during the day and you can down strong drinks on the picturesque patio or school your friends at checkers at the booths indoors.
