The Garage Bar & Sandwiches
Photograph: Jason Little

When a bar boasts a rooftop deck, over 90 beers and a menu of sandwiches, it’s safe to assume it’ll also boast an obnoxious River North crowd. There’s nothing of the sort at the Garage, a pretense-free neighborhood hangout on the Northwest Side. Darts and shuffleboard provide entertainment on the industrial-ish first floor, while the mellow second-floor roof deck has plenty of tables and (so far) no need to fight for one.

They always have new additions to their menu and new beers on tap. VERY well managed establishment. We moved out of the neighborhood and miss this place as much as anything when we think of our old place!

Food is incredible. The fried AND grilled wings and the best fried chicken sandwich I've ever had.

The owners run this bar the right way. They wear their effort on their sleeves and the result is great service, great sandwiches and a strong beverage program. It's the best bar in the neighborhood by a lot.
