The Irish Oak

The Irish Oak

Appears in 3 Collections

WHY HERE: An overlooked gem crammed into Chicago’s notoriously sporty Wrigleyville, The Irish Oak is a true comfort-food pub with a serendipitous twist: a decent whiskey selection. Its menu caters to both “The Very Top Shelf” as well as “The Rest of Us”: There’s a respectable range of Irish whiskey and scotch, as well as a few tongue-in-cheek cocktails for the party crowd.

WHY NOW: Following the Chicago Cubs’ once-in-a-century World Series win, the entire neighborhood is being rebranded and rebuilt. Solid as an oak, this bar stands confidently unchanged.
