Public House isn’t necessarily the best at anything, but it’s really good for a lot of situations. It’s trendy compared to your typical sports bar, but casual for River North. There are plenty of TVs if you want to catch a game. And the bar food is above average. All of these things make it an overall great utility bar in River North, which is why we recommend keeping it in your back pocket if you’re around Hubbard Street.
