About The Monkey's Paw


Nestled in a quiet corner of Lincoln Park, The Monkey’s Paw is an intimate 72-seat neighborhood spot serving artisanal plates and pouring more than 150 whiskeys, craft beers and boutique wines.

Our rotating list of 12 draught beers features small batch offerings from craft brewers around the world. Our regional, seasonal, farm-to-table fare means the menu is never frozen and most certainly always fresh.

Join us for a weekend brunch or a spirited evening; the warm ambiance is always welcoming.

Yes, we get asked about the name a lot. The name comes from the famous short story by W.W. Jacobs, in which a monkey’s paw grants three wishes, with unintended consequences. In a nod to the 11 years it took to bring The Monkey’s Paw to fruition, we can certainly identify with the irony of the famous tale. But as another fable tells it, good things come to those that wait.
