Located in the heart of the Old Town Triangle District, Marge’s Still is known as the oldest running tavern in Chicago. The wooden bar is the same counter used when the building first opened in 1885, though the rest of the structure has inevitably gone through renovations to keep the space functional. Through Prohibition, Marge’s Still managed to brew bathtub gin on the second floor, serve it to patrons in the basement, and keep it all secret from authorities. This sketchy speakeasy practice meant no windows at Marge’s Still during Prohibition; however, today there is plenty of sunlight and the gin is served out of bottles and in the open. Diners can chow down on everything from traditional burgers to gourmet salmon entrées, not to mention classic cocktails like French 75 martinis and Old Fashioneds. If you’re in the market to experience a slice of ancient Chicago history, Marge’s Still should definitely be your first stop.
