Chicago Draft House

Now Matilda, the Chicago Draft House lasted about five minutes on the Chicago bar scene. During its brief mortality, the house appealed to a “jockish” crowd by luring them in with 32 beers on tap, darts, pool, TVs, and plenty of neon in the window. For those of you longing for a good beer bar that’s actually open, check out Goose Island (the original or the Wrigleyville location), Hop Leaf, Map Room, or Quenchers, just to name a few.
