5 Bars Where …

… you can actually snag a seat outside

Corcoran’s Grill & Pub

No open sidewalk seating? No problem. Head to the hidden back patio. 1615 N. Wells St.
Make like an early bird (10 a.m.); then settle in and drink your brunch. 1824 W. Division St.
Citizen Bar
Weekends are for amateurs. Those in the know beeline here after work. 364 W. Erie St.
Bowman’s Bar and Grill
Huge sidewalk patio; no yuppies in sight at this neighborhood newbie. 4356 N. Leavitt St.
Melvin B’s
OK, so seats are at a premium, but there’s always a lap; plus, this is the standby’s last summer. 1114 N. State St.
