Questions about Irish Pubs in Chicago
How Many Irish Pubs are in Chicago?
I’m not sure exactly how many Irish pubs exist in Chicago but Forbes reports that there are roughly 4,000 Irish pubs in the United States. If I had to guess I’d say there are probably close to 50 or so Irish pubs throughout the Chicagoland area.
What is the closest Irish pub to Millennium Park?
One of the closest pubs near Millennium Park is Miller’s Pub. I didn’t include Miller’s Pub on this list as I’m not sure that it totally qualifies as an Irish Pub as the owners are of Greek descent. However, you can’t go wrong with Miller’s Pub if you are looking for a spot near Millennium Park. My family has been frequenting this place for years and it definitely holds a near and dear place in my heart. If you go to Miller’s you’ve gotta sit at the bar and if you are lucky you’ll get Beeker as your bartender, he’s a legend. Order the Sanfilippo family’s famous order Wings, Rings, and Things (things typically being the baby back ribs) and you won’t be disappointed.
Do I have to order a Guinness at an Irish Pub?
Every pub has a wide selection of beers, wine, and cocktails but if you’re getting anything but a Guinness you’re not doing it right.
