Rite Liquors

If you’re not familiar with the glorious convenience of “the slashie” (a.k.a. liquor store/bar), this old-man haunt is a good introduction. Sure, it looks like your average corner store: cases of beer, liquor and cheap wine surround retail shelves stocked with junk food in a fluorescent-lit room. But wander toward the dimly lit back of the store and you’ll find yourself in bar country wondering whether you should have a couple before heading home with a fresh six-pack.

Rite Liquors is a textbook Chicago Slashie. You can grab some booze to go or drink some there. If you're picking up some booze for the night, consider grabbing a shot at the bar on your way out.

I went here this weekend and loved it! It's definitely not for you if you are looking for a swanky trendy atmosphere, but if you're a fan of good old fashioned dive bars like I am I highly recommend this place.


All of the liquor bottles behind the bar are for sale (even those that have been opened) and are repriced as they are used. I went here on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty, but if you get a group of friends together I'm sure you'll have a great time and walk away at least a couple stories to tell.
