Hidden among the small alleys and intersection of Chicago's Old Town District, this very special bar and restaurant is the oldest running tavern in the city. Since 1885, the establishment has remained steadfast amongst the bustle of change throughout the Near North Side's long history.

Today, Marge's serves pub fare alongside its libations, albeit in a less nefarious environment and this watering hole still remains a favorite among locals. A great place to visit if you love Chicago history or if you just happen to find yourself in the cozy little Old Town Triangle and need a quick bite or a drink.
