Ranked: Top Ten Pubs to be in on St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago

In Case You Are Still Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day…..

The 5 Best Irish Pubs in Chicago

According to the Chicago Traveler:

Top 10 Irish Pubs in Chicago

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and to help you celebrate, the “Luck of the Irish” in Chicago, we’ve assembled a Top 10 list, with a little something for everyone!  From authentic, to affordable, this list has it all!

Top 10 Irish Pubs Chicago

#1  The Kerryman

Ireland meets River North with this classic, located at Erie and Clark on the Near North Side. Whether it’s relaxing on the mezzanine with friends after work, or enjoying their distinct Irish version of a quesadilla, The Kerryman is a must, when out and about in the River North area.

#2  The Abbey

This Northwest Side pub screams Irish meets the British Invasion.  It’s as if Paul, Ringo, and the gang had stopped in for a Guinness and had never left. The house bands flash you back to the 60’s with hits like, “Lucy in the Sky” and “Yellow Submarine.”

#3  Fado Irish Pub

Whether it’s the Irish flag, Irish bartenders, or the enticing aroma of malt vinegar they serve with their fish and chips, this is your classic Chicago Irish pub. Competing with other hot spots in River North, Fado separates itself by their authentic Irish interior, and their complete list of Guinness concoctions, and Irish brews.

#4  McGee’s

Located right in the heart of Lincoln Park, McGee’s offers that eclectic mix for a casual evening, while also giving anyone who chooses, the opportunity to really paint the town green. Later in the night, the live music kicks it up a notch, and you would be hard-pressed to find room on the dance floor.

#5  McFadden’s

Gold Coast’s hottest Irish Pub is not only the most popular Pub in this upscale neighborhood, but it  provides a nice hideaway from the chaos and bustle of the Division Street bars.

#6  The Irish Oak

There are not many true “pubs” in the Wrigleyville neighborhood. The Irish Oak is only one block from Wrigley Field, and upon stepping in the door, the atmosphere immediately takes you across the pond to Ireland.  They also feature enough Guinness for just about anyone to forget about the Cubs having another losing season.

#7  O’Shaughnessy’s

This Ravenswood classic features one of the most extensive draft beer selections on the top 10. In addition to Guinness, this pub features 13 other Irish and English beers on tap.   The friendly staff, and amazing food will make you want to order another!

#8  Emmit’s Irish Pub

An Irish eatery with more imported Irish beers than you would ever expect, and a location steps off the “El” (right off the Grand Blue Line Stop), makes this an all-time favorite of this Top 10 list!

#9  Dublin’s

Stay for the food!  When an Irish pub features baked goat cheese with tomato basil sauce and garlic toast points, it is like you walked into a 25th century upper-class Irish bar.

#10  Brehon Pub

Another foody favorite, this Irish pub located at 731 N. Wells Street, is a watering hole that features not only a vast menu, but some of the best specials any of these Irish pubs have to offer. With features like Fish N’ Chips, or Brats and Chips, for only $5.95 on a Friday, this makes for a great stop, anytime!
