Beer snobs that sometimes mis-label their taps. Otherwise an okay place.

Try the kimchi and sausages from our 100 Best list: It’s a Polish-Korean mash-up and the best of both worlds. (Look for the free grub to reappear occasionally over the winter.)

Ask for bartender's choice- a three dollar pour. Chances are, it'll be a delicious bargain.

Ever notice the draft board above the bar? That's all me ;)

Too pretentious for Bridgeport. Get over yourselves. You should have your asses kicked.

Top notch Old Fashioned and Margarita served up by Mixologist Kenny Furburger. You will often see the lovely Maria tending the fine selection of beer to go counter.

Zombie dust!

'Slashie' associated with the Lumpen organization. English pub atmosphere. Contemplative conversations. Studiously selected beers. Probably the best bar on the south side open to lay people.

All about the house music tonight.. Chicago Jackin music in Bridgeport.
August 28, 2011
Dunno about Metal Mondays but all draft beer is a buck off. Woohoo!
August 16, 2011
When the weather is nice definitely head out back and check out there great patio. Also on Monday's back there they grill up Korean Polishes.
August 15, 2011
Maria's Bar has some of the BEST craft beer in Chicago, Hands Down! With an eclectic music background on any given night, the Korean-Polish BBQ on Monday... you cannot have a bad experience there ever.

Beer tasting is a great idea

Great place, cool vibe, a bit pricey for the hood, but check out the specials and it will be easier on your wallet!
April 22, 2011
You'll never beat Nick for mayor because he checks in from home every night
April 7, 2011
Beer tastings from 8-10pm on Tuesdays! Nick, stop checking-in from your house! Not fair.

Try the beer

Excellent beer selection. Being a 3 floyds fan they have rotating variations i haven't found at other venues. Killer cocktails as well. Definitely a diamond in the rough.

Metal Mondays! Weed Wednesdays? Bring some snacks to share.
