Chicago Brauhaus

Bar in Lincoln Square & Ravenswood

Unlikely as it may seem for a bar, the oompah soundtrack, rosy-cheeked staff and early last call give this spacious Bavarian-themed joint the all-ages appeal of a Disney ride. Dinnertime is best, when the ‘world-famous’ lederhosen-clad Brauhaus Trio starts bumping, and steaming plates of schnitzel seem heaven-sent. Bring your dancing shoes, too – there’s polka action nightly.
