      Going downhill
      This used to be a fun place, but no longer. Save your time and money!

    • worst bar in the country
      Rude bartenders, horrible management. My friend ran a tab and went to sign out and the bartender had lost his credit card. He did not offer an excuse, an apology, or even seem to care. The manager was even less helpful and basically said my friend was lucky he wasn't going to have to pay his tab. We will never step through the door again. And we will certainly encourage our friends to frequent friendlier establishments.

      They Say no cover but they charge cover!
      Very sad that they chose gay pride to break their "never a cover" ad. Oh well, I went next door and spent plenty of money.

      Shame on you....
      when I took my friends there for gay pride weekend and found them charging a cover. I believe it is reprehensible that they would take advantage of the situation and gouge people. The economy is bad enough....why take advantage of people... SHAME ON YOU!!!!

      Perfect gay dudes sports bar
      Not the trendy, pretty boy Boystown crowd (not that that's bad) but the guys here are guys. Laid back fun party atmosphere.

      If you want to meet up with friends and catch a game or play darts or pool then North End is your place. The bartenders are always really friendly, and the crowd is not the typical boystown crowd.

      Great Neighborhood Bar
      North End is a nice change of pace from Sidetrack and Roscoe's. It's a great sports bar with friendly staff and decent drinks. And, of course, lots of big screen tv's to watch all the sports you would want. It's got a couple of bars and pool tables. Definitely worth checking out.

      Casual fun good time
      I really like this place. One of the bartenders is always smiling. They have games in TV and not music playing over them - like a real sports bar should. People with attitudes tend to avoid this place, which is a good thing. It tends to get a good crowd during the summer with Cubs games. A fun night and good times.

      So much fun and the staff is AMAZING!
      I've never been to this end of the stip before and this instantly became my new favorite bar. The bartenders are super sweet and cater to all clients. The guy we had, Tom I think, couldn't have been nicer, he gave us a full boystown review with a droll sense of sexiness. I would recommend this to everyone!

      NorthHalsted's sports bar
      If you can handle sports with the sound off...this is a good bar. Pleasant staff. Pool tables and darts drew most of the crowd.
