If you are looking tor that neighborhood bar feel, the kind where everyone knows your name, or acts like they do, then Matt’s should be your next stop. With their recent updates, Matt’s is the perfect place to meet with friends or family, have a drink,(my favorite is their Moscow Mule in a copper cup),and grab a game. Matt’s is also a great bar crawl spot, right across from the Crystal Lake station.
Ortmann’s Red Iron Tavern is a great place to get together with friends over a drink or perhaps a game of pool. This recently renovated tavern is housed in an historic building conviently located near Woodstock Square and the Metra Train Station.
