Archie’s Iowa & Rockwell Tavern (Bar, Humboldt Park)

Location: 2600 W. Iowa
Phone: (773) 486-2626
Cash only.

This dive bar is perfect for drinking cheap beer and partaking in a game of Candyland and Jenga. Which is exactly what we did. Surrounded by wood paneling and sparse decorating, take a seat at a table or belly up to the bar. We could tell as we walked in that this place is always full of regulars who come back every time for the combo of cheap beer (they have Hamm’s!) and good company.

They allow dogs and give away free cheese puffs — what’s not to love? Pool and darts are free. Though I didn’t play around on the jukebox, I heard it’s a great one. They usually have something random playing on the wall via projector. Archie’s is the perfect place to have a couple beers with close friends, and relax like you’re at home in your living room.

About Tessa McLean

There is just something about that feeling when you have been away — maybe for a weekend, a month, 6 months — and you’re driving into Chicago and that first glimpse of the city skyline appears. It just always makes me smile.
