Villains Black Market Craft, Loop

CHICAGO | Villains Black Market Craft opened in the Loop in 2007 and became a popular neighbourhood bar known for its great burgers and drinks. It closed in 2012, but was reborn just up the road in 2015 with a continued focus on great food, and an even greater focus on good beer. The space is open and somewhat rustic and makes good use of wood and metal.

Across 40 taps you’ll find an assortment of beers from craft breweries around the world. Beer is chosen to compliment the food menu and features rarities from breweries like Prairie, Mikkeller, Edge, De Molen and Amager. For non beer drinkers there are six cocktails on tap and there’s also wine and spirits.

Moving on to the food, the menu features seasonal American fare by head chef Dennis Stover – think Slagel Farms dry-aged smoked top sirloin with beets, cremini mushrooms, and cured rapini, and grilled milk-braised pork belly with charred asparagus, peas and honeycomb. There’s only one burger on the menu these days, but many consider it to be one of the best in Chicago. It features North County bacon, Hooks 4 year aged cheddar, B&B pickles, smoked red onion, and beef fat mayo.

Whether you’re up for a feed, or just looking for some beers you can’t find elsewhere in town, Villains is a venue well worth visiting.

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.
