Welcome to your friendly local lounge

The Green Eye Lounge is a neighborhood joint on the unfashionable side of Western Avenue, just steps from the Blue Line. Let your bartender guide you through comfortable surroundings, personally ensuring you an earful of good music and a glassful of good drink. All are welcome to join our team of Green Eye regulars. The Green Eye is nothing if not inclusive, an equal-opportunity thirst-slaker.

There’s no pretense here—in fact, the Green Eye’s self-proclaimed addition to the ’hood is “cheap drinks for reasonable people.” Locals head here for Lagunitas drafts, a small outdoor patio (in the summer) and its prime spot right next to the Blue Line, which makes this place easier to drop into your routine than sleep.

Love their selection of beers and love that they have games. Everyone I've encountered here is friendly and I love that tamale guy comes in here to help stop my hunger.

Been my favorite... for over a decade now. Friendly, great staff. Good beer.

It's a great place to meet up with friends while having a few drinks... It's a great place to drink solo, while working on your next fictional masterpiece, swiping for the ONE or looking for some interesting conversation.

Great Little place! Nice selection of beers, friendly staff and a cool atmosphere under/next to the subway tracks.
