Delicious cocktails in a cozy space
Exactly as it’s name suggests, this is an incredibly tiny bar. It has stood at the junction of Milwaukee and Ogden streets for 75 years, they’re open 7 nights a week and they cater to as many people as can pack into the 460 square feet of space. While this intimate bar has the look of a beer drinking tavern, the bartenders are actually incredibly adept at interesting cocktails with their gimlets getting the most acclaim. They stock the bar with unique mixers and spirits and relish unusual requests. The Matchbox bar is the ideal after dinner destination for one last cocktail before heading home.
