What you'll do

Happens every Sunday at 3 PM and Thursday at 6 PM. We’ll all meet at a local neighborhood tavern and walk to some of Chicago’s finest and historical bar establishments. This tour will be in the West Town neighborhood. We’ll stay close to downtown loop so it’ll be easy for you to get there and get back. You'll get a great experience with: • A FREE “Dive Right In” guide book to having fun at dive bars • Enough time to get a “feel” for each dive bar (we’ll spend about 30 minutes at each place) • Cheap drinks and eats • A great time meeting the locals • A bit of history on each bar we go to visit

Vince

I am co-founder of Tavern Rules, who have a great interest in preserving the dive bars and taverns in our neighborhoods. I have been to dive bars all over the country and have developed walking tours and publications to show everyone the neighborhood dive bars and taverns that are hidden gems in wonderful historic neighborhoods. If you're looking for a good old fashioned bar to hang out in, I'll show you the way. I am starting in Chicago. I've lived here over 20 years and have seen the lovely neighborhood taverns disappear one by one. There are still a number of them in town, and I will direct you to the best ones.
