The Scene

Renovated in 2011 by Spike TV's Bar Rescue, Blue Frog's Local 22 is a sports and karaoke bar featuring a snazzy sports design and a menu of organic meats and locally brewed beer.

Renovated in 2011 by Spike TV’s Bar Rescue, Blue Frog’s Local 22 is a sports and karaoke bar featuring a snazzy sports design and a menu of organic meats and locally brewed beer.

Bright neon signs and twenty TVs tuned to sports cast a flickering light over the rowdy crowd of college kids playing drinking games with every touchdown, homerun, or three-pointer.

Another large sign with the venue’s zip code hangs over the marble bar, highlighting the “local” aspect of the joint’s name and ensuring the cluster of young professionals and older regulars celebrate the neighborhood over yet another pint.

Once sufficiently fueled with liquid courage, groups of friends and brave soloists take over the small annex for karaoke, ready to deliver their best rendition of songs normally reserved for the shower. Heckling is not allowed, so patrons will just have to suffer in silence when less talented singers take to the mic, or they can always fashion earmuffs out of the hormone-free hamburger patties.

Good for a quick drink after work or a raucous rhapsody that lasts long into the night, Blue Frog’s Local 22 is a rollicking local’s bar where everyone is welcome.

Average rating:
Great local bar, right off the Mag Mile.

A modern Chicago bar that showcases local beers from Goose Island to Two Brothers. Great atmosphere, really nice bartenders who know their stuff when it comes to recommending a great beer on tap. They have great bar food, burgers and wings and such, and is located right off Michigan Avenue so there are plenty of other great restaurants around if you're looking for something else before you start your night. On the weekends they have karaoke, which I found to be a ton of fun. They have a huge song selection with something for everyone and the laid back atmosphere means there's no unwanted prodding to sing like at some college karaoke bars, so if singing isn't your thing, you can just sit back and enjoy the show. Definitely a place to check out if you're ready to have a fun night.
60611, known for its showcase on the bar rescue

This bar really tries to highlight the local part of its name. The actual bar is lined with its zip code, 60611, and there are a lot of local drink options. Some friends and I went for dinner and the burgers were great bank for the buck. They came with homemade chips/other sides and were pretty filling. I've heard the karaoke is also fun and might be worth checking out. Walking past this bar, patrons really seemed to note the place's presence on the show Bar Rescue.
