Maybe you just got back from taking your dog out at 1000 N. LaSalle’s Dog Park and you’re in the mood for some food. Or maybe you just fancy a drink to watch the big game. No matter what your intent, if you’re in the Gold Coast or River North and looking for a new place to try, then we have the perfect spot your taste buds will thank you for.
The Kerryman, located at 661 North Clark Street in Chicago, is the place! Not only are the food and drinks here tasty and fresh, but The Kerryman has loads of history. Its location was once a notorious gangster hangout spot known as the McGovern Saloon, where the young Dion O’Banion, a famous mobster, got his start. It was also the home of the original Chicago punk clubs in 1978. However, now the Kerryman is known as one of Chicago’s liveliest and exciting Irish bars, bringing that little piece of Ireland to our prodigious city. It’s a great place for lunch, dinner, and, of course, the perfect stop for after hours. Not to mention in the summer they have an amazing outdoor patio.
Enough with the history PPM, we want to hear about the food. OK, OK, let’s get started!
