Bar Details

Remember "Bill Swerski’s Superfans" from Saturday Night Live? Those guys are real, and they hang out at Martin’s. Blackhawks sweatshirts, Bulls hats, tightly coiffed salt-and-pepper mustaches, loud voices—they’re all sitting in the tall stools, yelling at the sports coverage on TV, and unironically drumming on the bar to “Rock & Roll Part 2” by Gary Glitter. The place is big and offers a nice selection of bottled craft beers, but your best bet is a $7.75 pitcher of Miller Lite, complete with an ice chamber built into the jug itself for maximum coldness. Naturally, the walls at Martin’s are covered with Chicago sports memorabilia, even a few relics celebrating Michael Jordan’s fabled return as number 45. The bar also has a kitchen, which closes at 8 PM. —Luca Cimarusti
