Kelly's may not have a specialty drink, but it does offer specialty viewing: 10 big-screen TVs, tuned in to sports.
The South Side sports bar is a true neighborhood place. The crowd is typically a mix of locals, ranging from people in their 20s to 40s, content to kick back and sip on one of the bar's draft beers. (Bass, Miller Lite and Budweiser are on tap.)
The bar also has a jukebox, and although Kelly’s doesn't serve food, the staff is more than happy to let patrons order from local pizza and other takeout spots.
For drinkers who want to brave the often unpredictable Chicago weather, Kelly's also sports a beer garden that seats 40 to 50—and it was still open as of early October. Defiantly, the bar says it will keep it in use "until the snow comes."
