Great small bar with great food in a great community with a ton of historical charm. Highly recommended. Also ask about the secret speak-easy like hidden bar downstairs.

We went to Green Door the night before a friends wedding. The drink menu is great in quality and variety. The service was great and we had an amazing time!

We visited the Green Door Tavern because of a recommendation from a friend. We knew about the speakeasy in the basement. It was really cool. You will have to find the foor on your own (part of the fun). As you enter the speakeasy you are greeted by a host and they ask about your drink preference. It was more... More

Great selection of craft beers, good whisky, a distinct atmosphere, the best bouncer in the city, and a cool speakeasy in the basement. It's not fancy, it's not Michigan ave, but it feels like home which has got to count, right?

The finest non-pretentious burger in River North with a great beer selection. The burger comes with fries and the usual toppings. For some reason, maybe it's the historic wooden building or the fine wait staff, burgers tastes better here than in the several other joints nearby.

The Green Door Tavern is the oldest pub in Chicago, and is still going great! Look up it's history! A festive atmosphere with muliti-colored lights strung throughout, lots of seating, great bar. It's the type of pub you want to go to in order to have fun and wind down. Street parking, or nearby lots. Enjoy craft beers, domestic and... More

Not too sure about this one. We wanted to go to 'Speakeasy' and the Concierge at Trump Tower recommended this one. We had a drink at the bar, then asked for the 'Waiting Room' which is code for the Speakeasy. After knocking on the Bookshelf we entered full of anticipation, ordered a drink at the bar and were asked for... More

We stopped by after dinner for a drink and the bar. Lively place with lots of history and a funky interior. Good beer selection, but the French 75 is also a good cocktail to try. We'll be back!
