Bearded Lady is a neighborhood bar where they take their cocktails seriously. Although that doesn’t mean this place is stuffy. It’s just a casual bar in Prospect Heights (that happens to look like an airport lounge from a 1960’s spy film) where you can confidently order a bartender’s choice before starting a conversation with some neighborhood people sitting next to you.
