Monk’s Pub

Remember when we talked about drinking inside a European monastery, like, a few lines ago? Yes, well, that themed bar actually exists and it’s in Chicago’s Loop. Monk’s Pub gets its inspiration from a Trappist Belgian monastery. It’s named after the monastery where the owner spent a childhood summer.

So go there and drink some beer between aged woods and dusty old barrels, while enjoying one of the pub’s famous chili cheeseburgers. What’s not to love?

Lockdown Bar & Grill

This is one of the quirkiest themed bars in the city. Right in Ukrainian Village, Lockdown Bar & Grill is, you have probably guessed it, prison-themed. The whole place is made after a prison, with a table in the back being “jail cells” and prison bars separating all main areas in this pub. Lockdown Bar & Grill is famous for its amazingly good burgers, such as Arson, Death Sentence, and Flight Risk. They also have a great selection of beers, so it’s definitely worth the visit.

Beauty Bar

Drop by the beauty bar for a night of drinking in the most vintage of settings. This bar is themed after a 60s beauty salon, and it’s right in Chicago’s Noble Square. It is a well-known spot to grab Martinis and dance the night away, as it’s one of the most famous places in the city where you can dance to 80s beats and indie pop.

So, when you’re done getting your drink on at these amazing theme bars, drop by WhirlyBall for a game or two, we’ll always welcome you.
