A Saturday Night Live sketch, along with Billy Goat’s proximity to the city’s scribes at the Chicago Tribune, have made this dive bar, located under Michigan Avenue, world famous. The walls are lined with historic photos, not to mention about 80 years of hamburger fumes. Today, Billy Goat remains a popular spot for journalists and locals looking to have an after-work cocktail—and none of those fancy craft cocktails or craft beers, mind you. Known for its surly service, the bartenders here are actually quite nice.
