  • Kelly's Tavern
    4403 S. Wallace St., Chicago
    (773)924-0796
    Owner: Bill Babaskow
At first glance this looks like your everyday neighborhood bar...  It's been situated at the corner of 44th and Wallace for over 35 years. The inside isn't fancy, A couple pictures of the mayor (the Old Man), And a few old White Sox stars. But start a conversation with the old guy at the end of the bar (the one with the Notre Dame hat on) or the couple sitting at one of the tables, and you soon find out that 96% of the patrons are Irish (Either greenhorns or narrowbacks) They came with their folks or on their own to Chicago and settled in the near south side where they could get jobs either at the stock yards or one of the numerous packing plants... (My own great-great-grand-mother settled in Canaryville after the Civil war and opened a boarding house and took in laundry). So if it's a cold beer and good conversation that you want.  Be sure to give Kelly's a try... (Thanks Joey for the tip)

  • Schaller's Pump
    3714 S. Halsted Ave., Chicago
    (773)376-6332
    Owner: Jack Schaller & Family
Schaller's may not sound like an Irish name. And it's not. The Schaller family emigrated from Germany. But they have been serving pints and shots to the Irish that lived in the neighborhood since 1881. They also serve lunch during the week days and lunch and dinner on the week ends. They have entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. The food's down to earth and very well prepared. Prices are reasonable also. (Try the soups. Their great) And if you can't make up your mind on what to have. Ask Sue, she's one of Jacks daughters, she'll tell you what's the special of the day...
