Bar Details

The very definition of a neighborhood bar, this modest watering hole is located smack-dab in the middle of a residential swath of Roscoe Village. The bar's namesake, a woman in her late 70s who opened the place in 1975 (the building itself has been there since 1909), lives the next floor up and reportedly keeps a watchful eye on all proceedings via the bar's strategically placed security cameras. Though this may sound like something out of 1984, Millie's has a relaxed and decidedly unpretentious vibe, and is frequented mostly by friendly locals who pop in for the cheap domestics and free pool, usually while out walking their dogs. Like the patrons, the bartenders are always down for a good chat, especially if you're indulging in one of the many house-made spirits the bar's ambitious enough to undertake. That's Millie's for you: it's more than the sum of its parts. —Drew Hunt
