Editorial Reviews


“A guide and historical journey . . . a handy book [that] gets you out of the house. . . . Great for those who want to use taverns as a means to exploring the city. [Parnell] is a fine writer with a real sense of history. A fine, fine book.”  —Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune and WGN radio

“Very accurate. Right on the money.”  —Chicago Tonight

“One look at [Parnell’s] book, which overflows with adoration for Chicago’s taverns and the implausible legends that haunt them, and I knew I had never been anything more than a nightlife dilettante. . . . But it wasn’t until Parnell quizzed me on bar trivia that I grasped the truth: I’d never known bars—or loved them—quite the way he does.”  —Chicago magazine

From the Inside Flap

Kind of Like Museums...But You Can Drink There!

They're famous and infamous, riddled with stories and scars, and thriving with contemporary personality alongside historic color. They're the essential bars for understanding what Chicago is all about.

Your Chicago Bar Project

How about soaking up Chicago history and cultural knowledge one tavern at a time? In "Historic Bars of Chicago" author Sean Parnell ( delivers a compelling Chicago 101 and Masters program all in one. Simply visit the historic neighborhood pubs, dives, cocktail lounges, blues bars, jazz clubs, and bierstubes in his book; read a bit about them; mingle with the regulars; and join in their games, music, and banter. You will absorb the essence of the city and be thinking (and drinking) like a real Chicagoan in no time.
