Chaucer’s, No Easy Button Necessary

City Paper’s Watering Hole finds a good time having a beer and listening to someone else’s conversation at Chaucer’s Tabard Inn, 20th & Lombard.

Chaucer’s looks big from the outside, but inside it’s a narrow space cluttered with drinkers of all color collars. The mismatched artwork further lends to its charm; in the corner, a framed Flyers Stanley Cup poster hangs next to a sepia portrait of a stoic Eskimo. And the bar’s intricate wood inlay is classy without being too Cheers-y.

Chaucer’s has half priced drinks for the ladies each Monday, and sidewalk dining all nights as well as a game room upstairs.
