Another day, another Best Of list. This month’s Esquire (on newsstands with the foxy Megan Fox on the cover) revisits their Best Bars in America list, the ever-evolving roundup of the top places to get shitfaced (in a refined, gentlemanly fashion, of course).
For Chicago, we’ve had some additions (say hello to Sheffield’s, who Jeff Ruby added to the list thanks to their ivy-clad beer garden and their wise decision to keep Surly Furious Ale perpetually on tap), and some knockoffs (a fond adieu to the closed Red Lion Pub).
Esquire’s complete list of Chicago-area Best Bars in America is online, and allows you to interactively rate your preferred (or despised) watering holes on a percentage scale. After the jump, how the local drink suppliers fare:
