Higgins' Tavern

Higgins' Tavern is described by the owner Jim Higgins, as "a cozy neighborhood bar with a sports motif and great bar food." There are no pretensions or attitudes here - just a friendly crowd, enjoying some cold beer, bantering about sports, and tasting some of the best bar food in Chicago. The bar area is spacious and populated with friendly people, and you won't believe the terrific old beer cooler until you see it in person.

So come join us, and be prepared to enter a throwback to a time when the neighborhood tavern was truly a local gathering place.
