Chicago - Where To Go

Chicago - The Matchbox

This place is tiny! Legally no more than 30 people are allowed in the place so it comes by its name naturally. The Matchbox calls itself "Chicago's Most Intimate Bar." It’s a mere three feet wide at its narrowest and about 10 feet at its widest point. The Matchbox draws a variety of people of all ages tending towards those over 25. If you’re claustrophobic you can go outdoors to the tables and chairs on the sidewalk fronting Odgen Avenue, weather permitting.
