Chicago >Hogs and Honeys
“The drinks are a little expensive considering the atmosphere, but not outrageous.”
“The drinks were watered down and the staff was incredibly rude to our whole party!”
“It's a great place to go to and just let yourself loose.”
“The bartender was incredibly rude on the microphone to everyone and also to your face when ordering drinks.”
“Beer was cold and plentiful, although obnoxiously expensive at $5 for a Corona!”
The absolute worst bar I've ever been in.. I was drawn in by the mechanical bull, however, when we got there the bouncer at the door was very unfriendly, like he was going to jump down your throat at any moment. The website makes it look like a great time, looks can be decieving. It was so crowded and hot in there that you couldn't breathe. You would think that would be a fire hazzard if the place ever went up in flames there would be no escape. Than before we even went I looked up their drink specials for Saturdays and it said $4 long island ice tea. I got there and paid $9 for my long island (which was in a tiny plastic cup) $25 all together for only 4 DRINKS!!! We went across the street to Joes and I paid $8 for a long island in an actual glass that was appropriately sized for the price and you could move in there without feeling entrapped. WHAT A RIP OFF THIS PLACE IS :( very disappointed.
Worst Bar in Chicago. I've been to many many bars including Coyote Ugly and Hogs and Heifers in NY. This place did not hold up to any standard much less those bars. I'll explain. We arrived at door, only to be greeted by a rude bouncer who asked for our IDs (which i normally always welcome). He begin to throw his weight around with us, explaining (in not so kind terms) that he was not in the mood for our comments when we only wanted to clarify if he wanted our IDs. We proceeded through the door only to stopped so that we could pay a $10 cover for the privilege of stepping into the bar. It was a sloppily dressed crowd with sloppier service staff. The attempt to entertain the crowd by dancing on the bar was cheesy and unoriginal. I couldn't force myself to spend a dime with them and had to leave.
I was looking forward to a great night out with my future sister-in-law and all of our friends to celebrate her bachelorette party. We had a great time but with no thanks to this establishment. We got a package that was $30 per person for unlimited well drinks and can/draft beer from 9-12. When we got in the bar a little after 9, the beer was not even behind the bar! The keg was brought up around 9:25 but we were then told that it was not cold yet so we might want to wait until the keg chills. The beer was not at a drinkable temperature until after 10. When we pay for unlimited drinks from 9-12, the beer needs to be ready, cold, and accessible at 9. Not only was it not there, but the only choice of the beer that came with our package was bud light. That needs to be specified when a party is booked. It's ridiculous that a bar only has one type of beer. The bartender was incredibly rude on the microphone to everyone and also to your face when ordering drinks.
I do have to say that the shot girls that walked around with shots were incredibly nice and very attentive to everyone.
The bathrooms were incredibly dirty and by the end of the night the sink was turned upside down and had fallen off of the wall and there was no toilet paper.
I would not recommend Hogs and Honeys at all, I had a great time but because of my company not because of this establishment!!
HOG & HONEYS RUINED OUR BACHERLORETTE PARTY!.
WORST NIGHT EVER! DON?T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY HERE!
I have been to several of the clubs in the area and always had a great time - Crowbar and Circus. And I work in Streeterville and frequent the bars there as well like Timothy O'Tooles and its always great!
But this was the worst experience I have ever had!
The bathrooms were disgusting and dirty and out of order at 9pm when the doors opened!
The drinks were watered down and the staff was incredibly rude to our whole party! I got to ride the mechanical-bull before it broke and the guy snapped at me telling me not to touch him when I was trying to get on. Then the mechanical-bull broke when the bride-to-be was on it and wasn?t fixed while we were there! They promised a photo and t-shirt for the bride and they didn?t make good on that either! But after the horrible time we had ? we decided to leave with almost 2 more hours left on our party package! I would rate this place a negative 5??
NOT ONE GOOD THING TO SAY-DON'T BOTHER. The only reason that we went to Hogs and Honeys was for the b-ride for my friends bachelorette party and guess what-it broke! The bathrooms were broke, dirty (isn't even the word), no tp and we had the party package for drinks from 9-12. Couldn't even get drinks. We had to leave at 10:30 if we were going to salvage this night. Short story-DO NOT EVER GO TO HOGS AND HONEYS-WASTE OF MONEY AND HUGE WASTE OF TIME! The bar was dirty, small and unprepared for any time of business when it came to its staff.
BAR LALA-LAND. The "littlePrincess" needs to get out of lalaland land and realize that this place is a nightmare not dreamland.
Where was everyone?. If this place actually had a crowd maybe it would've been fun. As it was we were there on Friday night at around midnight to 1am and there was nothing going on................boring. Unless they do something to generate a crowd I'd have to say this place is past it's prime.
Mechanical Bullride is fun!. I always have a good time. If you're only into trendy hipster joints steer clear of Hogs and Honeys. But if you're looking for a break from the same ol' crowd, then it's a fun diversion. The drinks are a little expensive considering the atmosphere, but not outrageous. The crowd is a mix of frat boys and biker wannabes. Good place for meeting guys as they always seem to outnumber the ladies. The mechanical bullride is a blast, always fun to watch tough guys makes fools of themselves after too many $4 PBRs.
Great fun Atmosphere!. I was here last Saturday and I absolutely loved it! We arrived around 9:30 pm and not much was going on but after about 2 hours the place was packed! The bartenders are total sweethearts and very attentive. The prices are somewhat high but I've seen drinks more expensive. The mechanical steer is awesome and dancing on the bar looks quite fun. It's a great place to go to and just let yourself loose. I totally recommend!
Terrible Service. A cover charge, weak music, and bartenders unable to tell the difference between giving a place character and being rude=a bad bar experience. Only worth it if you like being ignored when you try to order drinks.
