A British-Indian bar on increasingly bland Division Street could have been a mess of subcontinental kitsch and curry. Instead, in the able hands of Heisler Hospitality (Sportsman’s Club), it’s more Darjeeling Limited than colonialist throwback. Despite “pub” in the name, the focus is on refreshing cocktails, with a whole section devoted to Royale Cups (fruity combos using Letherbee Distillers’ version of Pimm’s). It’s also got the best bar Food on the street since SmallBar closed. 2049 W. Division St., 773-661-6874
