Hamburger Mary's

Bar in Andersonville & Uptown

The Chicago outpost of this campy, gay-friendly San Francisco-based chain serves well-regarded burgers and weekend brunch in the downstairs restaurant, but the action’s on the rowdy, booze-soaked patio. Next door is its 'nano-brewery' pub Andersonville Brewing Company, which makes its own beer and turns on the HDTVs for sports fans (it stays open a bit later).

An upstairs lounge called Mary's Attic hosts cabaret, karaoke and DJ dance parties on Wednesday through Sunday nights.
