A friend of mine invited me today to hipster bar (never been to one before until today ). Let me admit before hand the women were a perfect noine. I noticed a common theme among all of the " patrons ". The need to show independence by either inking all over the body , cutting hair short near the ears, growing beard / moustache (mm and things of that nature). They serve Obscure drinks Not known to a lot of regulars ( their theme is to be against capitalism ). They were playing a japaneese movie with subtitles while songs from local artists were played (both were horrible ) Most of customers are " artists " . This is supposed to be one of the most happening places in chicago . Just left after having a beer and glad I have my scotch at home. FYI , I sport a trim beard too, but couldn't take too many Rebels without cause while I was there to unwind after working for 12 hours Has any one been to these kind of places and how did you feel ?
