Tasty beer and appetizers, and a huge space

Wow. That was my first thought walking into this place, which from the street didn’t seem to take up too much space. Once you step inside though, you realize the space is super-deep and cavernous, and even bigger once you count the equally-cavernous second floor.

We spent all of our time upstairs, as there was the Tech Cocktail event going on, and thankfully the big space handled the large crowd easily.

I was surprised by the quality and price of the food there – it was both tastier and cheaper than I would have expected.

This barleycorn location is right next to Wrigley Field, so I bet it gets packed during games, but otherwise seems like a great place to hang out with friends for a good drink and snack.

Boneless Chicken Strips

Tender and tasty

Beef Flautas

Crispy, but only for a short time. Make sure to eat these while they’re hot.

Great open space

We had the opportunity to do a demo here for TechCocktail 4 and I really liked the space better than the previous Cocktails I’ve been to (2 and 3). Barleycorn has 2 huge floors and TC had the whole 2nd floor which gave ample space for people to mingle without bumping each other’s beers. There’s plenty of bar space and some nice lounge seating along the edges. It’s a great place for a large event and I definitely recommend it for other event planners – just make sure you do it while the Cubs are out of town to make parking easier.

Boneless Chicken Strip

Sweet and tender chicken – real easy to eat without the bones. Real nice snacker food.

Beef Flautas

Pretty crispy with a decent amount of beef. Ate it over a few hours though so they lost their crisp and got cold – the chicken stayed tasty longer.

Nothing Special

The food here is really nothing special. I had trouble finding something that I even wanted to order and when I did it was just blah - but I guess thats what you expect from bar food. I have had fun here when I came for a night of…
