Durkin's TavernLake View
This Lakeview tavern possesses the oldest continuous beer license on Chicago's North Side. Such a legacy appropriately sustains the feel of an old neighborhood tavern -- friendly, comfortable and full of loyal longtime patrons. Surprisingly spacious, Durkin's walls are covered with old artwork, photographs and Irish accents. The front room's sliding glass doors open to let in sunlight when the weather's warm.
