A Rich Chicago History
At the heart of Chicago bars and nightlife, The Lodge Tavern opened its doors in 1957 and is the oldest standing establishment in the Gold Coast’s Division Street Entertainment District.
The Lodge has served as a neighborhood gathering spot for conversation over beer, classic drinks, and an endless amount of complimentary peanuts. Out-of-towners and regulars alike are always pleased to find the venue as cozy as home with a familiar and friendly staff.
A Friendly Atmosphere
Since our founding, The Lodge has remained a bar built on relationships, good beer, and bumping elbows with new friends. We’ve seen engagements and marriages start at our tables. We have watched friendships start over shared peanuts on the table and watched friends relive favorite memories when a song plays on our jukebox.
It’s been this way for generations, and it will stay that way for generations to come.
