EAST VILLAGE — Ald. Proco Joe Moreno doesn't really like to be called the "Hipster Alderman."

And he took offense at someone calling him "pro-bro" when pulled into the argument about whether the boozy Division Street entertainment district that sits on the border of Wicker Park and East Village is now more bro than hipster.

But he is happy to share his favorite haunts.

“I’ve lived here for 18 years and personally I like [long-time hipster dives] Gold Star, Rainbo and Zakopane,” he said. “As alderman, I’m not going to criticize other places, but that’s my personal preference.”
