From the folks behind similarly literary-themed Irish sibs Beckett's and Wilde, Lady Gregory's intricate dark wood moldings and book-lined library (complete with a portrait of its namesake) provide a fitting backdrop for sampling their 300-strong whiskey list. Floor-to-ceiling windows beckon you inside, and once you realize you're in an Irish pub with a passion for farm-to-table, sustainable, local ingredients, you'll probably stay for dinner.
Lady Gregory’s is almost too classy for St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago. Don’t believe us? Check out the “library room” for proof. In addition to offering sophisticated opportunities to fake-read Irish classics, this spot is also highly regarded for its brunch and firelit vibe that makes a perfect spot for awkward Tinder dates. They’re also going all out for St. Patrick’s Day this year, with menu specials and live music every day until March 19.
How to order: Stop by for first come, first served seating, or order takeout via Toast.
