Hundreds of travel books and guides line the shelves of this globe-trotter's tavern. Peruse that tome on Fuji or Antarctica while sipping a pint of one of the 20-odd draft beers available.

This bar has character. It feels like stepping inside the pages of a national geographic... with a beer in hand. It's covered wall to wall with maps and flags, and features bookshelves stacked with national Geographic's throughout. Usually it's packed! Hard to find a seat...More

This is a great bar in the Bucktown area. It was really busy but we were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar. Really wide selection of quality draft beer available, shame we couldn’t have stayed longer. I wish this was my local!

This place is always ALWAYS packed. So look at beer me u ahead of time and have your order ready. There is nothing worse than a busy bartender taking someone order as they go "ummmm ummm" it's not a place to waste time with slow...More

Great beer, great atmosphere, excellent selection. Limited food but hops and barley should see you through. Wish I lived in the neighborhood!

The description of this place kind of made it sound like a traveler's hangout but it was more of a local bar with a traveler's theme. Still it was a nice place, with lots of local beers, and a good theme.

This is a beer aficionado's must. Great selection, cool staff, and the vibe is chill. There are a few quirks, namely that it's cash only and does not serve food. It's an easy walk from the Blue Line, California stop, which makes it very convenient...More
