Esquire’s Best Chicago Bars

Want to hit up one of the 'best' bars in Chicago this weekend? Esquire has unveiled its long list of the 239 best bars in the United States (plus a couple in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands). Twelve of these are from the Chicagoland area.

When the folks at MenuPages Blog checked out the website, according to them, there were no Chicago businesses in the top ten. But as of yesterday afternoon, there were at least two (Hideout and Duke of Perth). And the scores have changed since Sonja at Thinking of Drinking reported them a couple weeks ago. So be sure to visit the site and stuff the ballot box for Chicago!

The twelve Chicagoland bars are:

Chipp Inn
Duke of Perth
Green Mill Cocktail Lounge
Michael & Louise's Hopleaf Bar
The California Clipper
The Matchbox
The Red Lion Pub
The Violet Hour
Walter Payton's Roundhouse

You can see the entire list here.
