Bars near Second City?
Would appreicate some suggestions of a nice place for a drink before going to see a show at Second City.
There are a lot of bars close by:
- Corcoran's - right across the street. Good pub, but it gets crowded on weekend evenings, and it can be difficult to find a table.
- Wells on Wells - another straightforward pub next door to Corcoran's. Generally a little less crowded than Corcoran's, but it's often still hard to get a table on weekends.
- Adobo Grill - this is a Mexican restaurant with a bar area, but their drinks are great. next door to Second City.
- Old Town Ale House - This place has the most character of the places I've listed. Less yuppy vibe than the other places listed. It's a block away from SC.
I agree with the Corcoran's, Wells on Wells, and Old Towne Ale House recommendations but I think it's important to clarify that they are definitely on the
"Divey" side. I pick Corcorans over the three.
The poster requested "nice place" so I suggest the bar at Orso's 1401 N. Wells or Topo Gigio 1516 N. Wells
