Venue Info

Located in a West Loop building built right after the Great Chicago Fire, this historic Irish tavern first opened its doors in 1921. It's gone through a series of owners over the years, and its latest name, The Green Door Tavern, comes from its history as a speakeasy during the Prohibition (a green door indicated the presence of a speakeasy). Today, it's an essential neighborhood dive with a great draft beer selection, whiskey, and old-school Chi-town cheer.
