One of things I wanted to try before leaving Chicago was visiting an authentic speakeasy. I researched this one as it was near our hotel and one of the oldest bars in Chicago. There’s a speakeasy underneath which was actually used during prohibition! I had...More

The history of the Green Door Tavern is almost as entertaining as having brunch at Chicago's oldest tavern from 10 to 2 on Saturday or Sunday. Located at 678 North Orleans Street, the Green Door Tavern dates to 1921, when Vito Giacomo opened a restaurant...More

This is one of those must go places when in Chicago. It's off the beaten path a bit and worth every effort. No fussy craft cocktails here. Just an honest to goodness American bar with history that includes Al Capone. No place like it in...More
