Kibbitznest Books, Brews & Blarney

Cafe in Lincoln Park & Old Town

This warm, eclectic cafe rambling over several rooms is devoted to creating a 'third space' for face-to-face communication and intellectual discourse (there's purposely no wi-fi). Play the piano or some board games or sink into a comfy armchair and read one of the used books on display. Cocktails, beer, wine, coffee and a small nosh menu keep you going.

Check the website for weekly events such as comedy or poetry shows, literary readings, book discussions and liberal-arts talks.
