A delightful addition to the 6th Street District, with quality craft beer (no crap on tap!) in a beautiful setting.

This beautiful old building once housed a "Nascar Bar." Mercifully it was not Nascarred for life. The Chicago House is under new management, with new owners, and a fantastic new look.

The redesign takes advantage of the gorgeous 1880's era building (a former boarding house), with a spacious upstairs, wood floors throughout, large windows and the exposed stone. It's a visual treat. The beers are in the spotlight though. 20 craft beers, rotating as often as a keg is finished, and two hand-pulled cask ales at all times. Their website features a live updated tap list at all times, linked to the large electronic display boards over the bar. As a tap is changed, the menu, and the website show it immediately.

There is also a full bar, with an extensive whiskey and Bourbon selection, a nice complement.

All beers are $5 and most are served in 14 oz. glasses (some "big" beers are served in smaller glassware due to higher alcohol content) . Every day from 4:20 - 5:20 is Happy Hour, with $1.00 off all beers. Beertending staff are friendly and knowledgeable and offer tastes and suggestions for folks trying to escape the bland beer drudgery of budmillercoors. A full bar is available also, and food (mostly burgers sandwiches and salads) is brought in, literally, from the Parish Underground (formerly Beale St Cafe) just down the alley next to Bikinis, which shares an owner.
