This Tri-Taylor joint has been in business since 1936, making it one of Chicago’s older “Irish” sports bars. Wednesday is karaoke night, featuring specials on shots with names like “Sex Panther” served by the token female bartender and an emcee trying to persuade a room full of sports fanatics glued to the TV to sing, with limited success.
