Now severed from the Small Bar on Fullerton (closed) and the original Small Bar Logan Square (actually in Avondale), the Division location is increasing its focus on craft beers and the creative farm-to-table fare of chef Justin White. Craig Hiljus, GM and house mixologist, oversees the seasonal cocktail list.

This cozy establishment was voted the country's best soccer bar in a 2010 U.S. Soccer Federation poll, and I'm voting it the only tolerable place to have a beer on the stretch of Division between Damen and Western. In fact, it's a damn sight better than tolerable. Small Bar Division has 21 well-curated taps of mostly American crafts—you'll have especially good luck finding limited releases from local breweries like Half Acre, Metropolitan, and Solemn Oath—plus a seasonal selection of adventurous, even playful cocktails. —Philip Montoro
