The Aberdeen Tap
Okay, I’m about to let you in on one of our favorite bars to go to in the West Loop. Technically, this bar is in the “Near West Side” since it’s north of Fulton Market St, but just go with it. The Aberdeen Tap is one of our favorite places to go to unwind after a full day of cleaning rooms and chill with a patio beer (or 5). They’ve got a great menu of both food and beer, and the service is second to none. I will admit, it’s much more fun to hang out here in the summer because they do have one of the best (maybe THE best) patios around, but it’s still an awesome place to hang in the winter too! The crew there is very chill, the bar itself is no frills, and it’s a very neighborhood-y spot.
The best part of The Aberdeen Tap is they take happy hour very seriously, and it lasts all day long! Each day is different, but all are seriously discounted and the food is actually stellar bar food. Aberdeen Tap was even featured as part of Wing Out Chicago, where the best bars get together and bring their best wing game to one location and compete to see who’s actually got the best wings in the 312. So what I’m trying to say here is….Get the wings!!
As for happy hour…
Monday’s - $4 Bells beer with $8 Bangers and Grinders
Tuesday’s - $1 off select drafts and $5 wings (!!!!)
Wednesday’s - $4 Veltins Pils Draft and $5 burgers
Thursday’s - $5 house wines and $2 off salads
Friday’s - $5 Jameson shots and $3 PBR’s
Saturday and Sunday – Same as Friday, PLUS $5 Bloodies and Mimosas=
So basically, any day you choose to head to The Tap, you’re in for some seriously good specials. If I were to recommend any of the wings to try, I’d say the California Gold. They’re my absolute favorite. Great, now I want wings. See you there?!
The Aberdeen Tap is open Monday-Friday from 11am-2am, Saturday and Sunday from 11am-3am at 440 N. Aberdeen St.
