Heard about this bar thru the grape vine and decided to try it out. Let me tell you we were not dissapointed. The drinks were delicious, the music was amazing, and the history/ back story of this bar was over the top. I highly recommend...More
Went for the music and atmosphere--of these two points the venue delivers. A very historic atmosphere with awesome jazz playing. The drinks cost more than I think they should, but not too much to be unreasonable. But the staff. Rude, short, and just so-full-of-themselves that...More
The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge in Chicago, IL treated a person who has disabilities poorly on the night of August 9, 2018. My friend "Smith" uses a walker everyday and was coming with me to meet friends there. When we entered, and paid an $8...More
We stopped in on a Sunday night. The cover charge was only $5 and the band was excellent. Many of the reviews complain that the bartenders are rude but we didn’t find that to be true the night we were there. Beautiful building.

The Green Mill Lounge is an iconic Chicago Speakeasy and you can see it in the decor. But the place is also known for another thing. Poetry Slams started in this lounge over 25 years ago by Marc Smith. He is usually there unless he...More
Al Capone is history...and so is Green Mill's jazz and aura! Went on a Friday night at 1130. $15 door, followed by rules of no talking inside. Below par performances from men in their 70s. Largely older retired crowd. Dark interiors. Boring vibes. We stayed...More
