“eclectic beers / cool hangout”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

If you love craft beer, this is your place. The Map Room offers a nice beer list without being overwhelming. The staff is very knowledgeable, and seems happy to help you to select what you may like -- and the atmosphere is not stuffy at all as it can be in some self-proclaimed brew pubs. There's wifi if you wanna be connected, but no food. If you need something to eat, you can go to one of several ToGo places within a couple of blocks and bring your food back to the bar -- and the bartender has some menus for you if you need it too. One last thing -- the Map Room is cash only.

“Great beer. Relaxing bar.”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

Wonderful beer selection at appropriate prices! Fun, laidback atmosphere with easy going barkeeps. Had a lot of fun and was able to try some good beer in more enjoyable atmosphere than a lot of the loud, obnoxious bars we frequented in Chicago

“Great Place for a Beer!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Great stop for a beer. Huge selection of bottled beer from around the world and an excellent selection of beer on tap. Wonderland Hinterland is a favorite although probably seasonal. Easy to have a conversation as well- not so noisy you can't talk to the person next to you!

“This place is for beer drinkers who love...”
Reviewed April 23, 2010

This place is for beer drinkers who love knowledgable bartenders. Probably the best selection of beers of any village of Chicago around.
