Just the place we need while teetering on a worldwide economic abyss.

Restaurant Details

With the world teetering on the edge of an economic abyss, plenty have remarked upon the wretched timing of this trader-themed sports bar. Nonetheless, hordes of River North workers—if not actual traders—pack in after five to ogle sport-tuned flat screens and decidedly three-dimensional waitresses, tank-teed and dude friendly. There are all sorts of other diversions for arrested adolescents of drinking age, including special Xbox booths and pay-as-you-go beer taps sprouting from the tables, as well as a predictably dull menu of upscaled, uninspired pub grub—overcooked but nicely seasoned Kobe sliders, untruffly Parma-truffle fries, and boneless buffalo wings (aka chicken breasts). Overall it’s about as groovy as a Cheez Whiz factory, but it fits in with the neighborhood’s other theme-park restaurant attractions.
