Editorial Review of Kasey's Tavern

This Printer's Row classic has been around for a century, with high, tin ceilings and a solid wood bar that nearly runs the length of the tavern. Blue collars, collegians, loft dwellers and tie-wearing dossier-toters belly up to the battered bar for anything from Peroni to Samuel Smith, while the Golden Tee, Big Ten banners and six televisions appeal to sporties. If there's any doubt about this shot-and-beer bar, read the bold print on the cooler that's stacked with dozens of specialty beers: "Positively no dancing — that's our motto."

The jukebox is as varied as the clientele. The pool table is gone, leaving plenty of room to get into arguably the narrowest bathroom (one for each sex) in the city. A street-side patio provides another reason to stick around, and here's one more; during football season, the menu expands to include more than just Taylor Street pizza.

There are daily drink specials, a bustling happy hour, 18 different beer taps and enough quirks and personality to make Kasey's the truest neighborhood joint in the South Loop.

Average cost: $10-$20
