What it is: Chicago-themed sports bar opened by two brothers hailing from you guessed where.

Why we love it: Steve and Dan Swartz have created a high energy, positive atmosphere that’s welcoming to all, whether or not you root for the Cubs, Bulls, Bears or Blackhawks—although the Chicago pride, from the six Goose Island brews on tap, to the classic Chicago hot dog on the menu and sports team regalia strewn throughout, is infectious. With 24 rotating craft taps and 15 HDTV’s, there’s something for everyone. Bring a pal who’s homesick for the Second City.

What to order: $.50 wings on Sunday and Monday nights! The “totchos,” ($9) nachos but with tater tots, are a game changer. An Illinois-based microbrew you’ve never tried before.

Regular tip: Despite the Chicago pride, this ale house is Rangers headquarters.

Windy City Ale House is featured in the 2015 South Brooklyn & the Rockaways Beer Book, on sale now.
