CHICAGO | Richard’s Bar is a River West institution, a dive bar that’s been open since 1926 and is still just as popular as ever. Walk inside and you enter another era. Neon signs and a retro jukebox filled with tracks from Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and the like light up the smoke filled room (yep you’re allowed to smoke, and even buy smokes here). Rat Pack memorabilia and Scorsese movie posters dot the walls. The bar is lined with regulars and the service is friendly and no-nonsense. a TV shows live sports out the back while spontaneous bouts of dancing can happen anywhere in the bar. It’s a fun, honest place with not an ounce of pretension in its bones.

For drinks it’s an assortment of beers like PBR and Miller High Life to Goose Island 312. The spirits selection also ranges from low to higher end options. In all cases, the drinks here are cheap and there will be something that suits your tastes. If you want a bite, Richard’s Bar sells hard-boiled eggs for 75c each.

It’s a shame there aren’t more places like Richard’s Bar around any more, but we’re very glad that Richard’s still exists.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
