Lanuti's goes hand-in-hand with my review I did for Southport Lanes in Chicago, Illinois.
If you are a history buff; especially when it comes to small vernacular neighborhood bars constructed in the late 19th-Century, early 20th-Century, then you must make a pilgrimage to Lanuti's in Ladd, Illinois.
This is an original Schlitz Bar, built in the early 1930s. The style is Art Deco, and the bar/restaurant is almost 100% intact and original.
The bar is immaculate, the service was attentive, and the italian food served was surprisingly very good.
And of course, the beer was excellent. After we finished our dinner, we sat at the bar for a couple of hours and imbibed several tall glasses of Schlitz.
In short, this is a bar you could easily hang out with your friends (or a date) for a couple of hours. The bar has a very relaxing atmosphere.
I will definitely be returning soon.
