Across from Vito's on Madison, the 1st Hill Bar & Grill is a great dive that's been around forever. In front is a pleasant, ordinary diner with anti-contemporary upholstery and plastic ivy. The party's in the back: an unbeatably awesome old-school lounge with murals of Greek ruins.
This place is closed.
