Glascott's Saloon, also known as Glascott's Groggery, has been quenching thirsts since 1937 and is still owned and operated by a never-ending supply of Glascott's (Four generations). Truly a classic pub with all the modern needs to watch Da Bears, multiple flat screens. It's customary to take a shot every time the Bears score or at least when I am there! This neighborhood style bar is next store to the Athenian Room if you are hungry for one of their famous gyros. Gyros, shots and Da Bears! Who could ask for anything more!

No shortage of fun times in this classic Chicago bar.
