Looking for an excellent place to get some drinks and kick back after a long week? Check out a few of my picks for the best bars in Lincoln Park:
Delilah’s — 2771 N. Lincoln
Delilah’s has been a staple of the punk scene in Chicago for years, but it is also a great spot to just hang out and get a drink. The bartenders are extremely friendly and it’s the only place I’ve seen polo shirts elbowing with Mohawks! They also serve over 400 kinds of whiskey, so you certainly won’t leave thirsty.
ROCKS Lincoln Park — 1301 W. Schubert Ave.
Bars around the city offer so many specials sometimes it’s difficult to pick the one for you. If you like martinis, I have the answer: ROCKS Lincoln Park on Thursday nights. You can choose between the killer Diablo martini (vodka with two bleu cheese-stuffed olives), the deliciously sweet chocolate martini, or many other creations—all for only $5!
Best Date Spot
AliveOne — 2683 N. Halsted
AliveOne sets the mood with warm lighting and excellent tunes. With an expansive beer list and delectable cocktails, everyone is bound to find something to love in this swank spot. Its great location also makes it a wonderful after-dinner location when you just don’t want the night to end.
Best Local Beer Selection
Goose Island Brewery — 1800 N. Clybourn
This great bar/brewery/restaurant is the perfect place for a date or a serious beer tasting. Goose Island produces a bunch of craft beer—best know are the 312 Urban Wheat Ale and Honker’s Ale—and they also serve excellent food!
Gaslight Bar and Grille — 2426 N. Racine
You may be asking why food is of concern on a list of bars, but sometimes you need a break from your beer! Gaslight has the best classy bar food in Lincoln Park. The fish tacos are out of this world. For those of you who need meat, though, the Montana steak wrap is beyond good!
