Bars without televisions are rare. But amongst the subset that is TV free taverns, the most rare is the average corner bar. In the pursuit of the screenless libation it is far more likely to encounter a craft cocktail speakeasy, wine bar, or beer snobatorium than a seasoned neighborhood tap. This is what makes Lucky Dog so extraordinary, its the classic american sports pub found on so many american corners minus the sports and especially minus the televisions.
From the outside or inside it looks like any other simple neighborhood or college tavern. The bar runs along much of the west wall and its offerings are pretty typical. Standard spirits and wine are complemented by a very decent, 2 dozen or so draughts and an array of bottled and canned brew. There are a couple tables up front, and in the back a shuffleboard table and a few pinball machines do their best to distract the mostly younger crowd. The aging CD jukebox handles music duty but the volume is kept low allowing the buzz of conversation to own the space.
