For seven decades, River Shannon has lived by the number one rule of Irish hospitality: ‘You’re a guest on your first night; after that, you’re a regular.”

Your Dog’s Favorite Bar

It only takes a few steps inside of River Shannon to know you are in the right place. Our friendly bartenders often know neighborhood regulars by name, and are always ready to meet someone new. Visiting from out of town? We love you too, and you are sure to get a true Chicago experience here.

The best part of River Shannon? Besides the cold beer, friendly atmosphere, and free popcorn? It’s the dogs. We love your furry best friends here and don’t want them to be lonely while you catch the game at our place. Bring your dog along*, they love our bar too.

A Chicago neighborhood bar for over 70 years!

We take pride in being a premiere Lincoln Park neighborhood bar. In fact, we’ve been here since 1946 all while staying true to our Irish roots. Check out any of our fun events – all pet-friendly, of course – to meet others from our eclectic neighborhood.

You don’t need the luck of the Irish to find a good bar with good beer, good friends, and good dogs. You just need River Shannon. See you soon.

*Dogs must be leashed at all times.
