As COVID continues to dictate our lives, we knew we’d be faced with more changes in the coming fall months. Most recently, bars have had to close their doors for indoor service or close entirely if they do not serve food. That has made it difficult to know which of your favorite places are still excited to have you drop by. That’s why we put together a list of some of the places we’ll be frequenting in the next few weeks!
Butch McGuires has remained a Division St. staple since 1961 and has now been able to remain open despite harsh conditions. A big reason for that and the same reason you should be planning to visit Butch McGuires, is that Division Street has blocked off traffic and allowed for restaurants and bars to use the street for outdoor dining purposes! Now Division Street Corridor will be open for outdoor seating 7 days a week, make sure to make a reservation beforehand to ensure you get a spot as seating is limited.
Located on Chicago’s infamous Clark Street, Gaslight is one of Chicago’s premier sports bars and one of the best places to grab a drink and catch the game. Gaslight has been operating under CDC guidelines throughout the summer and into the fall because of their large outdoor open air patio that looks onto Clark Street. The patio is filled with tv’s so you never miss a play and heaters so you never get cold. Seating on their patio is limited so make sure to head to their website before going to check out the best times to visit.
Bub City, another Clark Street classic is remaining open this fall going into winter. Known for their famous american BBQ and whiskey, Bub City is a must-visit for anyone looking to get some hardy food and classic drinks. Bub City offers outdoor patio seating Sunday-Wednesday 11am-11pm and Thursday-Saturday 11am-12am to ensure you have a good time while also staying safe. If you’re looking to reserve your spot, head over to their website and checkout the availability for this upcoming season!
