Pubs in Lincoln Park Overview

Café Ba-Ba-Reeba - Spanish Restaurant | Tapas Bar in Lincoln Park, Chicago

As the most popular neighborhood for Big 10 grads and other frat/sorority types, Lincoln Park offers up nightlife reminiscent of everyone’s old college towns. The neighborhood’s historical feel makes the pub scene even more attractive, as some of the beer spots have been around from before Prohibition. Al Capone and his gangster friends even hung out at many of these long-standing Lincoln Park pubs.

Glascott’s Groggery is typical for the neighborhood, with its 1920s look and family-run friendliness. Huge windows and sidewalk seating make for great people-watching on this trendy shopping strip, and the bartenders can pour a proper Guinness. Other pubs in Lincoln Park, though newer, follow this standard, mixing up good brews and big TVs in rooms with original tin ceilings and mahogany bars from early last century.

Some pubs mix traditional atmosphere with modern touches. Paddy Long’s has embraced the bacon craze, with its weekly Bacon and Beer Tasting. Other pubs may not be so bacon-specific, but they’ll be happy to contribute to cholesterol counts with hearty pub grub like juicy burgers and crispy chicken wings. As many of the neighborhood joints are Irish pubs, food like shepherd’s pie dominates. Unlike cheesy Irish-themed chains, these places are usually owned by real-life Irish families who employ servers from the old country. The pretty people of Lincoln Park can revel in the cutesy feel of their pretty neighborhood with pubs reminiscent of life across the pond.
