If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. You could spend your Saturday night with a paper-sacked 40 of Olde E on the corner of Turk and Taylor, but we wouldn't recommend it. Instead, pop into one of these intimidating-from-the-outside, enjoyable-on-the-inside bars for either an expertly crafted cocktail or cheap pint of Pabst--whatever suits the mood.
