My wife and I are coming to town next month for a concert at Wrigley Field. We have another couple coming with us, and they are pretty indifferent on food. They would probably go to mid- to upper-level chains on their own.
I want to put together a plan with Chicago-only places that are very laid back and low-key. On the day of the show, I am planning to go to Lou Malnottis before the show, and I've heard Toots Bar is good for post-show drinks. We want to go to Headquarters Beercade one night, but other than that, I am up in the air as far as which places would fit what we are looking for.
I've looked at the following places, any opinions on which might be overshooting my mark? Anything I am missing? Any bar recommendations would be great too.
Little Goat, Barn and Company, Three Aces, GT Fish and Oyster, Publican, Purple Pig, Big Star, Butcher and the Burger, Parson's.
We're staying at The Palmer House, so from what I can see, that area is not too great for the vibe I am looking for. I know we will have to use the El to get around
