Welcome to Lotties for Da Bars Episode #4. Located at Winchester and Cortland in Bucktown/Wicker area on the Near West side of Chicago. It's the consummate neighborhood bar next to a bunch of houses. A full block away from any busy street in the area. It's quiet and peaceful and filled with people up and down the street.
It's also one of the most lopsided day drinking scenes I've witnessed. A lot of guys spend a lot of money to be at super cool and fancy places. Meanwhile Lotties is serving up Miller Lites and plenty of nice neighborhood folks that want to meet you. Take that for what it is.
Thanks to Miller Lite for letting me go around and check out my favorite bars in Chicago. I'll be back next month with some hole in the wall tavern coverage.
