A classic 80s aesthetic immediately envelops folks as they walk through the door of Elite Cafe & Billiards. Or rather, the 80's version of the 50s. A primary-colored art-deco bar, complete with rows of red bar-stools, chrome, and neon pink stands as the centerpiece of the cafe. The main attraction lies just past the bar: rows of pool tables lit by hanging red lamps. The 17 pool tables?all nine feet long?come surrounded by plenty of room to maneuver, giving players enough space to pull off trick shots and Charleston celebration dances. Back at the bar, pool players can sit and enjoy beer, soda, chips, and beer nuts.

Whatever their current drink of choice may be, guests can find it at Flight 112 ?but they shouldn't be surprised if they leave with a new favorite. The bar and restaurant revels in the unexpected. When Time Out Chicago's 2010 list of Top 50 Bars reported that patrons "get crunk, cultured and coiffed all at the same place," it was in reference to the Thursday-night haircuts Flight offered at the time. The Daily Herald describes Flight 112 as an "outstanding wine bar equally attractive to beer lovers." It's this dual-focused identity that keeps regulars returning. Daily specials, such as Whiskey Wednesdays and ladies' nights, make average evenings special. A full menu of tapas, gourmet entrees, and artisan cheese makes the location an appetite-annihilating hangout and a great place for your pet fork to meet other, likeminded forks. But Flight 112 is far more than a bar and restaurant. It's also a wine shop manned by sommeliers who love to share their passion with others. Its specialty here is organic wines, and the sustainable commitment that steers that specialty is also what guides the store's recycled bottles, corks, and packaging. (Flight 112's community awareness doesn't end there?it also helps many local organizations' fundraising efforts.) Flight 112's social and friendly atmosphere, paired with its full food and drink menu, make it a chosen venue for many birthday and bachelorette parties.

For more than 20 years, the staff at Riley's Gathering Place have slaked thirst and staunched hunger with a full bar and a menu of tavern-style eats, including salads, burgers, melts, and wraps. Fourteen flat screen televisions flank the wood-paneled walls, as bar-high tabletops play Duck, Duck, Goose with stools. A patio hosts al fresco dining in good weather. Free wireless Internet at Riley's Gathering Place means that debates can only last for so long until someone verifies that the chicken and the egg were invented at the exact same time.
