Carol’s Pub

Established in 1972, Carol’s Pub has been serving the people of Chicago for almost five decades now. This historic pub is quite popular amongst the residents of the city. Along with delicious drinks, yummy food and a lively ambience; the bar hosts live music shows which make this place even more awesome.
