View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

At its core, Old Town Ale House is a funky dive bar and historical hangout full of locals and comedians because of its location near Second City. The art all over the walls includes pictures of Vladimir Putin as a ballerina and Kim Jong Un and Dennis Rodman together. It’s the total opposite of everything else you’ll find near it on Wells St., which makes Old Town Ale House the perfect escape for a low-key couple of drinks.
