Great atmosphere for a Wednesday night. The specials are always a good way to save money and get tipsy.

From Our Editors

Live music and nightly specials on comfort fare, beer, and cocktails lure spirited crowds into Drum & Monkey, a cozy Irish bar located near the University of Illinois at Chicago campus. The establishment's draft-libation varieties include Smithwick's, Bell's Oberon, and Miller Lite, and a menu loaded with comfort fare acts as a perfect quaffing countermeasure. To create the house specialty, irish nachos, chefs swap out tortilla chips for fried potatoes, and serve them to diners seated at the bar or writing poetry about particle physics at long wooden tables. Drum & Monkey encourages late-night revelry with its 2 a.m. closing time and weekly events, including Tuesday-night karaoke, Thursday College Nights, and live music.

Chicago Nightlife Guide

From large clubs with pumping music and multiple dance floors to smaller pubs where "everybody knows your name" Chicago has great nights out, covered. Anyone can find Chicago bars to fit their needs, whether they are a group of friends heading off for a wild night, or a young couple looking for a romantic pre-dinner cocktail.

When most people think of bars, they think of nightclubs and dance clubs, and the city has these in abundance, all with their unique quirks. Popular bar 1914 has a vintage feel, thanks in part to its speakeasy decorations, while Funkybuddha Lounge, with its large dance floor and regular top-class DJs, is where people go when they want to get wild, have a few drinks and dance the night away. The Sound Bar is also best known for its dance floor, which sits on the second floor of the building. With its Red Room, Orange Room, well-known DJs, and great drinks, this nightclub knows how to get the party started.

Some people head to the bars in the hope of meeting new friends or finding a special someone. With this in mind, Public House has been created to be something like the love child of a sports bar and singles club. With meals large enough to share, big-screen televisions that constantly show games, and cheap drinks, it is a great place for a first date. When it's time for a second date, however, some might prefer the upscale vibe of The Aviary. The Aviary understands Chicago nightlife, which is why the bar offers traditional and modern drinks that are not found at other local bars. Walking into this bar feels like stepping back into another era of Chicago's history.

There are hundreds of different choices of nightclubs and bars in Chicago. While some people prefer the atmosphere of a vibrant modern club such as Sound Bar, others enjoy a microbrew and a full meal at more laid-back establishments including Bangers & Lace. There are so many different Chicago bars to choose from that there is no reason why anyone should have to stay home on a Friday night.
