This neighborhood bar is so cozy, it used to be called Snuggles Pub (no joke). But even after inheriting Irish-accented bartenders and a Guinness tap, it remains a popular homecoming hang for Gladstone Park thirtysomethings. The circular bar promotes camaraderie, 90's music is still alive in the jukebox, and we got so many Find the Third Boob photo-hunt games out of a single dollar that we wore out our right index finger.

I love the Three Counties Pub because it's so inviting when you walk in. Might not seem like much on the outside, but the bartenders and the customers make it worth going in. It's the kind of place with the kind of people that just make you feel at ease and welcome. The music is never overpowering so you're able to have a conversation. Plus you never know when some of the Irish gentlemen might break out into song. The pub feels like a slice of Ireland right here in Chicago.

The best all around vibe for people who love a good vibe and genuine conversation without music blasting in your ear.

If you want a taste of traditional Ireland in the U.S., with a good pint of Guinness, a hot whiskey, and bartender & fellow pub-crawlers with fantastic Irish accents, this is your place!

Because the people are VERY friendly, and the atmosphere is great. And the liquor is much cheaper than most of these other places. And I have been to most of them.

Love the neighborhood feel of this pub. The pint of Guinness is the best I've had outside of Ireland. Friday night is the best time to listen to the Irish customers sing traditional Irish songs. Like something you would see in Ireland. Great place to have a drink and a conversation.
