Stopped by for college football and saw that it is now an ILLINI BAR! Finally somewhere to watch Illini games where you don't see other college team flags being flown! Plus their football special gives you food and beer for 8 hours! Definitely stopping by again!

Durkin's is looking really good these day's. They have totally updated all of the rooms with new TV's and cleaned the place up. I love that they are a U of I bar now. My favorite is $1 well drinks on Thursdays! I had my birthday party there last week and I had a blast. The staff was tons of fun and really friendly.

Nothin' like poundin a few mcgerkin's at good ole Durkin's! That's what we always say down at DUrkin's on Tuesday night. I love these guys cause a lotta my old gollcege buddies hang out here and they know what's up. This is a good spot to chug a couple brewskies and get ready to party.

Durkin's is equatable to a dirty, trashy, frat house. The clientele are a young 20's (or wannabe's), obnoxious, falling down drunk kinda crowd. So if that's what you're into, this is the place for you! I wouldn't touch anything, you might get an STD....

I went to this bar for my sister's birthday, when a fight was started between my sister and some other female patron at the bar. The girl was arguing with my sister, and then broke a glass over her head. After this happened, my brother broke the fight up by tying up the other girl. When the bouncers got to the scene, they kicked out my brother and the other girl. All though they didn't have a good reason for kicking my brother out of the bar, since he was doing the bouncer's job anyways, they didn't seem to care. So we were outside waiting for the cops to arrive, and before they could get there, the other girl of course walked away. The entire time, all the manager was saying was asking us to keep it down, because it's bad for business and wouldn't help us out at all, or even let us back in after the other girl left. Thanks for ruining my sister's birthday.

Bad music and packed with over-served typical midwest mainstream Lincoln Park frat boy clones. The editorial review says ""possibly the friendliest bar"" but I found it to be quite the opposite, rude patrons, an indifferent staff and a urine soaked restroom with a sink full of someone's dinner.

How can the first reviewer be upset that there were hot girls and dorky guys here?? if you arent a dorky guy, then you're in the money!! I go here almost every Wednesday, the bar is PACKED, but everyone has a great time. they've got great drink specials. Hot girls, good odds of taking someone home on a weekday!

The last reviewer who called it ""Dorkin's"" is obviously a disgruntled patron who got shut down trying to hookup, which is sad...if you try and fail to meet somebody at Durkin's on a Thursday/Friday/Saturday night, you have absolutely no game and should be upset. This place has gone from being a quiet hole-in-the-wall to being one of the liveliest bars in the neighborhood in the past couple of years, though the interior has not really changed. The crowd is an odd mix of laid-back locals just out for a beer and the trendy-set. There's no gimmick here...it's just a bar with a *very* mild sports theme. Similar to Duffy's, but has a more crowd-friendly layout and lacks the air of pretension. However, it lacks the unique atmosphere of a bar such as alive One (right down the street).
