The brains behind Pub Royale (No. 6) traveled just a few doors down to open this British-navy-themed bar. That means a lot of dark wood and plenty of hot tea punch in white porcelain kettles. But the real feat is that this spot somehow manages to feel both decades old and totally fresh all at once. 2125 W. Division St., 312-697-3522
