Slow Food Guide Chicago on The Hideout

Published in 2004, The Slow Food Guide To Chicago by Kelly Gibson and Portia Belloc Lowndes has this to say about Hideout…

“The Hideout is one of those places that time and urbanization seem to have forgotten. Hidden away on Wabansia Avenue in the midst of decaying industrial sprawl, The Hideout draws a regular neighborhood crowd without the neighborhood. A small black-and-white handmade sign directs you in from Elston Avenue. The building allegedly dates back to nineteenth-century Irish immigrants who settled in this part of the city. Music and atmosphere are the real reasons to visit: The owners are enthusiastic music lovers and historians who are eager to preach the gospel of good music and the history of their unique establishment. The bar offers a standard range of drinks with some decent draft beers. If you want to explore local Chicago, The Hideout is a great place to start. You’ll just have to find it first.”
