Lounges in Old Irving Park

Kevin Warwick of the Reader called Alice's Lounge " one of the best worst decisions you can make on a Saturday night at 3 a.m." Best for the legendary karaoke, stiff drinks, and ever-present snacks––worst because the sun is about to come up and you’ve foregone sleep for the chance to sing. Wood paneling and neon beer signs validate this spot's credentials as a dive bar, which keeps its doors open until 4:30 a.m. on Saturdays.

Revelers gather around Lizard's Liquid Lounge's antique mahogany bar and intimate tables for open-mic nights, clothing swaps, burlesque shows, and darts and pool-league games. Three widescreen televisions draw gazes to tiny men engaged in sporting spectacles, while local and imported brews such as Rogue, Three Floyds, and Smithwick's whet palates. Homage Street Food's chefs operate out of a kitchen space adjacent to the lounge, where they craft dishes ranging from curry chips to char-grilled-beef sandwiches and chicken curry. Glossy oil paintings by Polish artist Tomek stand out from two-toned walls, and live music incites ears to waltz in 3/5 time on Friday and Saturday. Lizard's Liquid Lounge is a dog-friendly establishment.
