While you’re up there check out The Green Mill at 4802 N. Broadway 773-878-5552. It’s one of the oldest bars in Chicago. I haven’t drank there in decades, since I moved out of nearby Rogers Park, but it’s a landmark. It’s a jazz club that opened in 1907. Here’s the history if you’re interested. They’re open really late and are cash only.
