Long before Rush Street became tourist central, there was Pippin's Tavern. Since 1949, this has been a casual sports bar catering to the after work crowd. Within its cramped, woody interior, you will find a pinball machine, a couple of video games, a juke box and a TV constantly tuned to sports. In terms of food, Pippin's offers free peanuts (the shells litter the floor) and a good size menu of various sandwiches at reasonable prices. For a laid-back escape from the typical Rush Street crowd of tourists and yuppies, you cannot go wrong here.
