Emmit's Irish Pub

495 North Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60654

Bars & Taverns

Today the old tavern has taken on a new life, yet still with the same spirit. Emmit’s owners, Kevin Doherty and Ron Halvorsen (both firemen) re-opened the bar in July of 1996. With hard work, both renovating and becoming established, these gentlemen have brought back the nostalgia, creating a new Irish Pub with great spirit, great food and more wild times to come.
