    Cozy, lovely neighborhood bar in River North. Not your typical expensive, loud bar you would normally see in this area. Really friendly bartender & they have a fireplace for those cold chilly nights.

    Solid pub food, great beer selection including often obscure breweries. Pretty low ceilings giving it a cosy feel, Green Door is one of the more historically relevant bars in Chicago.

    This venue has been a tavern since 1927. Nationwide Prohibition was from 1920-33. Hmmm. I think the statute of limitations has expired; so it should be OK to mention.

    Stop in and try what is arguably the best Corned Beef Sandwich known to man. Wash it down with a Moscow Mule or our personal favorite the French 75, which was named after the 75mm howitzer!!!
