    During prohibition, a green door signified that the joint had booze.

    This combination worth my 4 hour flight from Mexico City.... Enjoy the Bootleburger with a Little Sumpin Sumpin Ale.

    Awesome decor and feel to this place! Checkout the crafts on tap. They rotate frequently and always house some of the best beer in Chicago and the U.S.!

    Great beer selection, a rockin' jukebox + pool table, and a newly opened speakeasy downstairs.

    Cool piece of history with a fun atmosphere. Original doorway still standing since the great Chicago fire.

    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.

    Massive portions (I'm British). Try the pork chop. It's huge.

    Calamari was good, although a bit crumbly. Good beer specials!

    Louis Klieger · August 22, 2014
  • Gareth J.

    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.

    Laid back, good conversations!

    Slice of New York Cheesecake with a Toasted Almond to pair = excellent decision.

    This place is a great, historic bar! Ask about its history as a Speakeasy.

    Try the zombie dust.

    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.

  • Amanda S.

    Try the buffalo chicken salad. Not too spicy but a good kick in the sauce!

    Amanda Schwartz · May 7, 2012

    Always great service and always great food!

    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!!!

  • Bruce P.

    One of the few places from before the fire. A good place to run into famous Chicagoans.
