Old Town Ale House (Bar, Old Town)
Location: 219 W. North Ave
A vintage juke box, second hand furniture and that certain “bar funk” scent only associated with good times. What more could a dive bar connoisseur like myself ask for? How about raunchy drawings of partially nude political figures all over the walls? Yes please! This my friends, describes one of Chicago’s most notable hole-in-the-wall’s, Old Town Ale House.
Old Town Ale House is about as unpretentious as it gets — so unpretentious in fact, they don’t even accept plastic. Make sure to bring your cash money to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the booze filled fun sure to be had at this specific watering hole. The beer list is simple, as are the regulars that fill the bar daily. The staff is friendly and easy going and the drinks are fairly priced. They don’t serve food, but offer bar snacks instead. So, do like we did and post up at a table with some good friends, good beer, and watch as the graphic wall art turns funnier with each drink you put down.
