River Shannon

At first glance, this 60-year-old establishment seems cast from the same mold as every other neighborhood Irish pub. After all, it has about a dozen Irish whiskeys, an antique wooden bar and photos of the South Side from the early 1900s hanging on its walls. It's the theme nights that separate this spot from the rest of the Notre Dame flag-waving pack.

Woohoo! First to review yet again! If you're looking for a relaxed, no-frills, chill Irish pub located in the heart of Lincoln Park, River Shannon is your place! They have a great beer selection, friendly bartenders, cool games, and an extremely inviting atmosphere. What more could you ask for, especially in a neighborhood dominated by annoying blacked out college kids on Lincoln and Halsted streets, brotastic douches abound, and an air of pretention abound? River Shannon doesn't possess any of those aforementioned annoyances.

Also, FREE POPCORN! Best neighborhood bar in Lincoln Park.
