Top 5 After Hours Bars in Chicago

Most bars and pubs around the country close in the early morning hours, around 2 AM. Fortunately for the true night owls, the great city of Chicago has a few laws in place that allow certain establishments to remain open until 4 AM. We’ve compiled a review of the top 5 after hours bars that can fit anyone’s style for when you don’t want to call it a night during your weekend in Chicago.

Hangge Uppe

The Hangge Uppe is definitely a top after hours bar in Chicago that you want to check out when you find yourself in Near North Side. There are two levels with dance floors. Upstairs you’ll find the current top 40 hits, and downstairs is classic rock and roll. The Hangge Uppe is the perfect place for a rowdy night out, especially when it stays open until 4 AM on Fridays and 5 AM on Saturdays.

The Barrelhouse Flat

Maybe “rowdy” isn’t really your type of after hour bar experience that you’re looking for. That’s why you should check our The Barrelhouse Flat if you happen to be in Lincoln Park. This is a perfect place to take someone on a first date, as the environment is more ambient and trendy in nature. The whiskey drinks are rated some of the best in the neighborhood, so don’t be afraid to try one of their unique cocktails. Sit back and relax late into the night at the Barrelhouse Flat, which is open until 4 AM Thursday and Friday, and until 5 AM on Saturday.

Green Mill

If you’re looking for live jazz music that goes long into the night, look no further than the Green Mill in Uptown Chicago.  You can expect a wide range of jazz including bebop, contemporary, and improvisational styles. There’s usually a cover for the Green Mill, which varies from $4-$15 depending on the popularity of the act for the night in question. The Green Mill keeps it’s doors open until 4 AM on Friday and 5 AM on Saturdays and provides a memorable after hours experience for your weekend in the Windy City.

Emporium Arcade Bar

Who said you can’t mix your love of drinking and video games? Emporium Arcade Bar is the perfect place for both, with locations in Wicker Park and Logan Square. Come out to either location for unique game events and tournaments, whether you enjoy classic games (like billiards or darts) or arcade games. You’ll also find beer events and some live shows on certain nights. Get your game on through 3 AM on any Saturday night!

Underbar

The Underbar is a perfect after hours stop with a retro dive bar atmosphere. Patrons note that the Underbar is a more laid-back place that jams to 60s pop until 2AM, then switching over to smooth indie music from 2AM until 4AM. This bar isn’t usually as crowded as the others, so it’s the perfect place to end your night if you are trying to wind down and enjoy some craft beers or strong cocktails.

 

Find Your Closest Pokemon Go Bar Crawl

A popular augmented reality game has taken the world by storm, and now you can expect it to take over your local bar. Pokemon Go bar crawls are being organized at a ridiculous rate, to combine older players’ love for gaming and drinking beer. The game encourages players to move around their locality and catch all 250 of the original creatures. If you’re an avid Pokemon trainer, make sure you attend the crawl closest to you!

July 23 – Brooklyn, New York

There are actually two big bar crawls planned in Brooklyn this weekend. One starting at Spritzenhaus in North Brooklyn that kicks off at 1pm. There are at least six bars on the tour that should get you a big variety in food and drink specials, as well as an abundance of Pokeballs. Another crawl starts at the Barcade in Williamsburg that will hit six stops between 7pm and 10pm. Both pub crawl events are offering contents and prizes (hopefully store credit for Pokecoins).

July 23 – Atlanta, Georgia

If you find yourself in the Atlanta area, you’re in for a treat. Atlanta Bar Crawls is sponsoring an official Pokemon Go bar crawl that is promised to hit up the key spots in midtown. This event guarantees 20+ Pokestops on the trip and at least 50 lures for non-stop spawning. This might be for serious trainers only, though — the event requires you to purchase tickets (ranging from $10 to $25) to participate.

July 23 – Sacramento, California

Trainers and bar goers in the Sacramento area can look forward to a twelve stop crawl that is filled with Pokemon themed specials, starting at Barwest. Whether you order specially colored drinks based on your team at Blue Cue or save up to $2 off on select beers at Der Biergarten, you’re bound to have a great time.

July 25 – Detroit, Michigan

Pokemon Go players in Detroit should look out for the bar crawl that starts out at Checker’s around 6pm. There isn’t too much of a structured plan that indicates what stops the trip will pass through, but you can count on stopping at any nearby Pokestop to farm Pikachus and grab pitchers.

July 30 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

If you find yourself in the City of Brotherly Love this weekend, make sure you check into this Pokemon Go pub crawl. Sponsored by Shibbly, an app that lets users share locations in a newsfeed-style, you’ll find yourself on a trip around Fishtown that hits at least seven stops.

July 30 – Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Join the biggest Pokemon Go bar event in Milwaukee, starting at The Pub Club! This is another event that requires tickets (don’t worry, they’re pretty cheap). Included in your entry will be free WiFi, charging stations, and seven straight hours of lures! You will enjoy specials as low as $2 from different bar crawl venues, as well as free cover into the Red, White, & Blue after party!

August 6 – Chicago, Illinois

Join hundreds of other Pokemon trainers in Wicker Park at the first Chicago Pokemon Go bar crawl! Event details are still being in the works, so check the Facebook page regularly. Make sure you brush up on your Wicker Park bar specials for the day so you know where to catch all of the deals… and Pokemon.

August 20 – Denver, Colorado

Thousands of Pokemon Go trainers are ready to hunt around the great city of Denver for some great Pokemon and great bar deals at this official pub crawl. Be ready to check out some great bars in the River North area (just north east of Coors Field). Stay tuned to the Facebook event page for more bar crawl updates on the closest Pokestops and participating bars.

Best Fourth of July Drink Recipes

Step up your party, barbecue, or hangout with the best Fourth of July drink recipes! We can all look forward to celebrating the independence of this great nation by taking the day off work and enjoying some family, friends, food, and fireworks. And of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a few specialty drinks! 

Homemade Summer Shandy

One of the best July 4th drink recipes is a homemade summer shandy! This drink recipe is lighter than others which is perfect for spending the day out in the sun.

You’ll Need:

  • Your favorite pale ale
  • ¼ lemon juice (half a lemon)
  • Blackberries
  • Mint sprig (optional)

Crush a handful of blackberries into the bottom of your glass. Pour in lemon juice, then top off with your beer of choice. You can garnish your shandy with a few mint leaves, too!

Patriotic Snow Cones

Snow cones are an excellent after-meal choice and are extremely easy to make! You can make a twist on the classic dessert by adding a little bit of alcohol for one of the best 4th of July drink ideas. If you’re trying to be festive for the holiday, you can make these in red, white, and blue coloring

You’ll Need:

  • Ice, crushed
  • ½ ounce of grenadine
  • 1 ounce of blue Curaco
  • Lemon-Lime Soda

Start preparing the drinks by filling a short glass with crushed ice. The ice might melt quickly, so be sure to pile it high! Next, pour in your soda to nearly fill the glass. You can then add in your grenadine and give it time to settle to the bottom. Slowly top off the cocktail with the Curaco and enjoy!

Looking for a little more complex of a recipe? You can always check out Clinton Kelly’s unique take on the alcoholic snow cone.

Red, White, and Blue Sangria

Odds are you’ll be spending time with a group over the 4th of July, so why not make a drink recipe that many can enjoy? This “patriotic” sangria is the perfect drink to stay cool on a hot day and fit perfectly before or after a big meal.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 bottle of Pinot Noir wine
  • 1 cup of cranberry juice
  • 1 cup of brandy
  • 1/2 cup Simple syrup
  • ¼ to ½ cup of orange juice
  • 6-8 ounces of blueberries
  • 6-8 ounces of raspberries
  • 6-8 ounces of blackberries
  • 1 apple, sliced

To prepare, you should make the simple syrup. Add ½ cup of sugar to ½ cup of water to a small sauce pan and boiling until the sugar dissolves. Make sure the syrup is cooled before using.

In a large pitcher, mix your wine, juices, brandy, and syrup. Then add your blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and sliced apple. Let the sangria sit overnight in your refrigerator to give the fruit a chance to absorb the alcohol. This is one of the best Fourth of July drink recipes to serve about six people the next day!

Blackberry Gin and Tonic

Another of the best Fourth of July cocktails is your blackberry gin and tonic. This recipe takes the standard gin and tonic cocktail up a notch!

You’ll need:

  • 2 ounces of gin
  • 3 ounces of tonic water
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • 6-8 blackberries
  • 1 lime wedge

Using a shaker is easiest to make this recipe! You can start by adding a few crushed blackberries, juice from your lime wedge, the gin, and the simple syrup. Shake the mixture thoroughly, then pour into a glass filled with ice. Top off the glass with your tonic water and garnish with another lime wedge and some blackberries if available.

Watermelon-Tequila Cocktail

There’s no need to worry about having any leftover watermelon from your cookout. Use it to create another of the best Fourth of July drink recipes! Try this Bobby Flay inspired watermelon & tequila cocktail that has a bite, yet is still refreshing.

You’ll need:

  • ¼ cup simple syrup
  • 8 cups diced watermelon
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 ¾ cups blueberries
  • ¾ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 ¼ cups silver tequila

Start by creating your simple syrup and setting it aside to cool. Blend your watermelon until smooth and strain juice into a medium sized mixing bowl. In a separate pitcher mix your simple syrup, lime juice, mint leaves, and blueberries. You can lightly mash the blueberries to release the juices inside. Add your silver tequila and the watermelon juices to the bowl. Chill the bowl in the refrigerator until cold. When serving, carefully pour the drink into a glass over ice. If you like extra mint you can add more mint leaves for garnishing!

Budweiser Name Change Raises Eyebrows

In early spring 2016, you might have heard about the revolutionary Budweiser name change. Next time you head to your local grocery store, you’ll be grabbing an ice-cold case of “America” from the back refrigerator rather than a case of Buds.

No, the name change is nothing permanent. The beloved Budweiser name will return to packages come this November, according to sources from within the brewing company.

Many have praised the Budweiser name change. Especially as we head into a heated election season, the self-proclaimed “King of Beer” takes a step toward increasing patriotism amongst it’s market. This campaign draws from recent messaging that Budweiser isn’t a beer that’s soft, it’s a beer brewed the good ol’ (American) way.  Others look at the change as a fun way to experience beer drinking in the summer. The summer season typically shows a higher spike in beer sales, and this campaign is a perfect way for Budweiser to break through as a leader for the 2016 season.

Others have not been so keen to accept the Budweiser name change.  Writers were quick to note that the beer giant’s patriotic efforts might not be as patriotic as they seem. Budweiser has steadily been declining in sales since the late 1980s, eventually being bought out by a large Dutch brewer, InBev. How can a European led company push so hard for American patriotism? Another opinion is that Budweiser is using the patriotic cans as a failing attempt to make macro-brews relevant in a beer market that is seemingly dominated by microbrews. In fact, most millennials claim that they have never even tried a Budweiser.

No matter your position on the matter, you cannot ignore the fact that this effort created a lot of buzz. A remaining question persists: Will you hold “America” in your hands this summer?

Your Beer Glass Type Matters

Any beer connoisseur should know that you can’t get away with pouring some beers in just any glassware. Pouring your brew in the wrong beer glass types can throw off the experience by altering head size (foam), aroma, and even the taste. There’s no sense in wasting a beer, so consider these different beer glass types before pouring up!

The Pint Glass

The most common beer glass that you’ll find at a bar is probably the pint glass. This beer glass type is perfect for most beers because the thicker glass holds the cold temperature longer than other glass types. The cone shape of the pint glass provides a wider opening that allows a thicker foam head to form and produce a stronger aroma. A slight variation is the “nonic pint,” which features a bulge near the glass opening. The nonic glass is supposed to help the drinker grasp the beer better. A pint glass is most commonly used when pouring a lager, IPA, stout, or porter.

The Pilsner Glass

One of the taller beer glass types, the pilsner glass helps the beer maintain it’s carbonation longer and also enhances the beer’s aromas. The glass is perfect for pilsners, and some lager beers. You’ll notice that most pilsner glasses taper off at the bottom forming a stem. This may make the glass easier to handle, but ultimately means less beer per serving.

 

The Weizen Glass

The weizen glass is quite similar to the pilsner glass, but the tapering at the bottom thins the glass a tad bit more. This beer glass type is perfect to show off the coloring of your beer, especially if it is cloudier than others. You won’t find anything else in a weizen glass aside from a weizen, hefeweizen, or witbier. Your weizen beers are wheat ales, rooting from German and Bavarian culture.

 

The Goblet Glass

The goblet glass type can hold a larger amount of beer per serving and resembles the shape of a bowl with a stem at the bottom. Most Belgian ales, bocks, stouts, and Imperial IPAs are best served in a goblet (or chalice). Essentially any beer that has a higher ABV should go in this beer glass type.

 

The Snifter Glass

Not to be confused with a goblet, the snifter is slightly unique in how it holds beers with a heavier ABV. This type of glass fits perfectly on one’s hand, which should gently warm the beer to a pleasant level. Snifters are a special beer glass type that releases the strong bouquet aroma of the heavier beers. One could also compare these to cognac glasses.

 

The Tulip Glass

The tulip glass obviously gets its name from the striking resemblance to the flower. The beer glass’ lip allows a thicker head to form and is perfect for hoppy beers (like IPAs). This glass also features a stem to prevent you from warming the beer glass.

 

The Mug/Stein Glass

The mug is the perfect beer glass type for a cheers!

This beer glass is perfect to hold higher volumes of brew. You’ll notice the durability of the glass protects temperature and the handle allows for easy holding. The mug is perfect when drinking numerous rounds.

Identical to the mug is the stein, with the only difference being an affixed lid to the glass type. In the 1400’s, the stein was designed by Germans to help prevent spread of the Bubonic Plague that killed thousands throughout Europe.

The Boot

Das boot! The perfect beer glass type for any celebration.

A more comical and novelty glass type, the boot also designed by the Germans, is perfect to use when drinking large quantities in time of celebration. The uniquely shaped beer glass comes from German military tradition. You can drink essentially any beer type in this glass, but lighter beer is recommended for faster drinking.

Best Summer Drink Recipes You Can Make At Home

Don’t find yourself mixing something bland or overpaying at the local bar. Try out these summer drink recipes you can make at home that will impress you, your friends, and family!

Frozen Mojitos

One of the best summer drink recipes is a mojito. But why settle for a standard mojito when you can make it frozen? Food Network star Bobby Flay kicks up this classic cocktail by juicing two limes and mixing it with ¼ cup of simple sugar. You can make simple sugar by boiling sugar and water until the sugar is completely dissolved. Dump the simple syrup and lime juice in a blender along with a 10 to 12 mint leaves. Add four ounces. of your favorite white rum and two cups of crushed ice. Blend everything up until you reach your desired frothy texture. Pour it up and add on another mint leaf or two for garnishment.

Sangria Blanco

Sangria is one of the best summer drink recipes you can make at home, especially if you plan on serving a group of people. Sangria is native to Spain and Portugal and was first introduced in the United States at the 1964 World’s Fair.

Sangria can be based with either red or white wines — the choice is entirely based on your personal preference. A simple white wine sangria (called Sangria Blanco in Spanish) can be made by mixing one bottle of a pinot grigio or riesling with a ¼ cup of your favorite brandy, rum, or vodka. Depending on how sweet you like your drinks, add anywhere from ¼ to ½ cup of sugar. Mix in some lemon juice as well as your favorite fruits, such as peaches, blueberries, and apples.

Dark ‘n’ Stormy

A dark ‘n’ stormy is a quick summer drink recipe to make that doesn’t require much effort or ingredients. Simply fill a taller glass with ice and add a shot and one-half of spiced rum with three ounces of ginger beer. If you want to get fancy, add just a sliver of ginger root for some extra kick.

Tom Collins

For something on the lighter side, you have to try a Tom Collins. Jerry Thomas, a famous bartender from the 1800s, first curated this simple recipe. The drink’s name derives from “The Great Tom Collins Hoax of 1874,” a light-hearted prank that went viral in the eastern United States.

This classic summer drink is made by mixing a splash of soda water, two ounces of gin with one and one-half ounces of lemon juice. Add one and one-half teaspoons of sugar to the mix and pour over ice. It’s recommended to use a tall Collins glass or something similar for the drinks to settle just right.

Classic Margarita

You can’t quite get in the mood for summer fun without having a margarita (or two… or three). Start any fiesta with this simple margarita recipe!

Add two ounces of silver tequila in a shaker with one ounce of triple sec (orange liqueur) in a shaker. Squeeze in about one ounce of fresh lime juice and shake up the drink. Take a margarita glass and salt the rim, then pour in your mixture.

If you find yourself sweating it out on a scorching summer day, take the same ingredients for the drink recipe and add into a blender. Add eight ice cubes and blend up! You can pour your frozen margarita in a glass with a salted rim for the finishing touch.
