Guys, don’t even bother. This River North hangout has plenty of tables to nosh on a burger and a big, circular bar with plenty of stools to put down your pints. But after work, it’s crowded three-suits-deep with men trying to flirt with the gorgeous bartenders, so only a woman could get lucky here.

Went last night and was a little surprised that they had decent bar food. There are little to no seats unless you sit at the car so it not the most amazing group spot. However we made it work and had many $4 gin and tonics. The bartender was really nice and I was surprised it wasn't as awful as I thought it would be.
