There every day from 1977- 1983. Great place,,lots of memories. Gary was great! So was Dyan, a bartender that could kick the bell.

Open since 1936, this is home to Chicago's oldest bar to have operated in the same locale. A nautical-themed decor paves the way for an alternative to the usual Rush Street bar scene. Open Mon-Fri 3 pm-4 am, Sat 11 pm-5 am, Sun 11 am-4 am. - Alotta, 12/16/2003

I agree with what the other old Hotsie Bartender said. Lots of fun, mostly. A few of those regulars mentioned above have died. Jimmy Stixx just joined their ranks too. - Tom N. Hotsie bartender 1996-98, 06/16/2009
The Hotsie will live in my memory till the day I die. Stumbling in on the the place while moving in down the street was one of the luckiest days of my life.

Great Dive bar! Cheap Drinks! Good jukebox selection! I have been there three times over the course of several years and 8 Track Dave is always at the jukebox! LOL - Sara From Cincinnati, 07/29/2007
I cut my teeth in this place. Bobby Darrin on the jukebox, drinks being poured like it was ancient Greece, and let's not forget my old buddy Bill. Very Good Times. Nothing like HT in California! - Q, 05/02/2007
It might be a dive but it is great!!!! Great place to met your friends and the go out and a great place to end the night. The bartenders and regulars make the Hotsie what it is. - Sarah, 12/04/2001
The bartenders are jerks at the hotsie totsie. The place is a dive and set up so that it is nearly impossible to walk around the place without obstructions. - Roachy, 07/09/2001
Perfect Dive Decor. Tons of tackle and other stuff that nobody in their right mind would steal. Cheap drinks, good crowd and close to the 'civilized' watering holes. A must!! - Fogdweller, 06/26/2001
This place rocks after about 2AM. Lots of atmosphere and the regulars can't be beat. Make sure you ask for 2-2 when you get there... always a hit with the latenight crowd. - Gruvy G, 02/27/2001
