may claim to be the tiniest bar in Chicago, but the Clark Street Bar, situated inside The Clark Street Dog
, may have it beat. Only about 10 stools line the bar and there is only one TV; an old-school jukebox entertains patrons with the likes of Bon Jovi.
Phil, the night bartender Tuesday through Saturday, is known for his off-beat personality and for hooking up regulars, most of whom are neighborhood residents who've been out at the other bars in the area and stop in for a boiled Vienna hot dog ($2.95) or a double cheeseburger ($4). Maybe they'll grab a domestic beer ($3.50) for a nightcap.
Average cost: <$10
