Burton Place (Bar, Old Town)

Location: 1447 N. Wells
Phone: (312) 664-4699

This small 4am dive bar is the perfect way to end an evening in Old Town. You’re to the point where the taste of your beverage doesn’t really matter, you just need a place to hang out, a friendly bartender, and maybe a spot to belt out some karaoke? While karaoke only happens on Tuesdays, every other night of the week this place is a great spot to check out no matter what time of the day.

The downstairs consists of one large rectangular bar where most patrons belly up. There’s a table or two up front and a darts board on the far wall. The place is generally very dark and has several old TVs hanging around the perimeter. For more space or simply a change of scenery, try the upstairs, which features pool tables and a party room. Music is supplied by a decent jukebox.

Grab some grub from their full menu of decent bar food or get your munchies on late night with some cheese fries. Like we did, as it was the last stop on the Old Town bar crawl. Another success capped off by belting out our favorite tunes. Cheers Burton Place, thanks for the nightcap.

About Tessa McLean

There is just something about that feeling when you have been away — maybe for a weekend, a month, 6 months — and you’re driving into Chicago and that first glimpse of the city skyline appears. It just always makes me smile.
