    This place is possibly joint top of my list of world cocktail bars so far! The bartender Max actually had very similar style and personality to a bartender at The Old Fashioned Gin Tonic & Cocktail bar in Barcelona, and the drinks were of equally good quality! Their Eponymous Old Fashioned was the best I've ever had! "Baby Steps" was sleek and smooth, also very enjoyable, and another bartender made a Mezcal cocktail especially for me using smoked fig, pineapple and a herb I can't remember. It was exceptional!
    An outstanding performance, and a real treat to visit. Thoroughly recommend!

    Really cool place to go for cabaret performances. Great staff and excellent selections from the bar. I'm sure I'll be back again.

    Phyllis' might not look like much from the outside (kinda dingy tbh), but we strolled past one day and heard some nice music. Decided to check it out, a band was playing and the room was semi full. The bartenders were nice, the beer cheaper than most of the fancy places around Wicker park, the vibe was unpretencious and friendly. The bartender Rueben, in particular, was supernice. There is a backyard were you can still hear the music and even play basketball if you so wish. Great little gem along Division street!

    My wife and I went to watch one of my favorite bands play an acoustic set. This was our first time. We liked the venue, it is small and you can see the band very well.

    The audio quality was pretty good, but could be improved a bit.

    One tip for anyone going to a concert there, get the VIP seating. They have about 10 seats that are just above the back of the bar. These are virtually the only seats in the house. You are comfortable, can see great over top of all the standing heads and the bar staff are right in front of you for easy access to drinks without moving from your spot.

    Great place for a pint or two. Wouldn’t recommend the food though. Very over priced for what it is. You can definitely find a better bang for your buck and your taste buds would love you.

    We ate at the Handlebar with my son and his girlfriend. The restaurant was packed at 5pm! They have great appetizers! The vegan cheese nachos and Chili
    Cheese fries were very good! We each had something different for dinner, and the buffalo ‘chicken’ wrap was definitely a hit, as well as the chili!

    Nice place with a really comfortable room in back available for rent. Drinks prices are average and music is decent. There is s DJ on Saturday and June box music as well. Overall nice relaxing place.
