Drenched in history, the Kerryman’s location was once a notorious gangster hangout known as the McGovern Saloon, where the young Dion O’Banion got his start as a singing waiter. In 1978 the location became home to one of the “original” punk clubs and was considered to be the zenith of the original Chicago punk movement.
Now known as Chicago’s liveliest Irish bar, located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s River North Neighborhood, The Kerryman is a little piece of Ireland. The 3 owners all hail from Co. Kerry Ireland and the Head Chef Damo Moloney from Co. Limerick, Ireland who creates an upscale authentic Irish menu.
Whether you are stopping by for lunch, dinner, an after work pint or late night dancing the staff at The Kerryman are here to make you feel welcome and at home.
