Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
A bar with a liquor store attached to it goes by many names, including "taproom," "packaged goods store" and "combination bar/liquor store." In the past we've referred to them as "slashies," but it doesn't really matter what you call them. These are the neighborhood spots where you can sit down for a drink at the bar and then grab a bottle of whiskey and a six-pack to bring home on the way out. We've scoured the city, from Bridgeport to Jefferson Park, and found nine of the best examples of this dying breed of integrated commerce.
