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

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.
