There’s something super quaint about this old dive bar. You’d never expect a rager of a night from a bar that doesn’t even go by its legal name—locals refer to it as “Jimmy’s” for the namesake of its owner—but let me be the first to tell you that Woodlawn Tap has it going on. They serve burgers for $3.50, house drinks for $4, and plenty of beer for under $5. Giving this place the benefit of the doubt is probably the smartest idea you’ll have this year.

The University of Chicago has a hidden basement bar with an outstanding beer list, and now that you’re in on the secret, we know you’re just itching to try out this old-school speakeasy pub (if you can find it). The only catch is that someone in your group has to have a UC ID to get in, and then cover is $3. If you are a student, faculty member, or know someone who is, then you’re in luck. Purchase the $10 membership to get free cover for the whole year and make sure to participate in games like trivia and Beer Passport.

This brewpub actually originates in Michigan and we’re just lucky enough to have a location out here in Hyde Park. Jolly Pumpkin brews some delicious concoctions to go along with their weekly $9 pizza specials, so you’d be remiss if you passed this place up. The rustic-chic, modern decor pairs perfectly with the atmosphere they’re trying to promote, so make sure to visit them soon—they even have music bingo on Wednesdays, as if you needed more incentive.

Cove Lounge is a relatively small space, which makes every experience there totally intimate, especially with the help of the vintage jukebox.
