    Flight 1551

The bar chart | Feb 22–Mar 7, 2012

Our heated assessment of where to drink this week.

Advertising

BARCITO Stand while we eat? For Ryan Poli’s pintxos and Tippling Bros. cocktails, we can manage it. 151 W Erie St (312-274-1111). file under: cocktailians, louder than a bomb

BONSOIREE It’s still BYOB if you want it to be. But if you don’t, there’s now the option of wine pairings. 2728 W Armitage Ave (773-486-7511). file under: good enough to eat, winos

BULLHEAD CANTINA One beer, one shot, one taco, $6. That’s why they call it the No Bullshit Special. 1143 N California Ave. file under: cheap

CLOVER SPORTS & LEISURE Sounds like a boutique REI, but it’s actually a tavern with a retro jukebox. 722 W Grand Ave (312-344-1934). file under: neighborhoodie

FLIGHT 1551 Small plates (e.g., bacon-wrapped dates)—and 50-plus wines by the glass to drink with them. 1551 N Wells St (312-664-0841). file under: date night, winos

HACKNEY'S February here is now known as Stout-uary, featuring dark, toasty brews from Bell’s and more. 733 S Dearborn St (312-461-1116). file under: beer geeks

SIDECAR BAR A martini bar from the owners of T's replaces Duke’s in Rogers Park. 6920 N Glenwood Ave (773-764-2826). file under: cocktailians, gay friendly

THE SOFO TAP What breathed new life into this corner gay pub? A party called “Grrr…it’s Friday.” Seriously. 4923 N Clark St (773-784-7636). file under: gay friendly, neighborhoodie
