The New Line Tavern is right downstairs from the Clinton stop.

For our April Streetsblog Chicago reader meet-up, we decided to gather at an extremely train-friendly location, the New Line Tavern. Not only is this watering hole located directly below the CTA’s Clinton station and just north of the Ogilvie Center’s Metra tracks, it’s housed in the ground floor of the Powerhouse Building, which formerly powered the Chicago & Northwestern Railway, and the bar is decorated with vintage train photos. There’s also a Divvy station on Clinton just south of Lake Street. Here’s the skinny:
