The park will be fully functional during the construction allowing for major summer events to continue including Make Music Chicago and Alderman Cardenas's Bike the 12th Ward.

Looking for info on old McKinley Park storefronts and taverns

Walking around the neighborhood you can't miss all the buildings, mostly sitting on corners, that use to be stores or taverns in the past. I'd love to hear from any residents that remember what some of these places were, when they closed down, and what it was like inside. I've tried doing research online, but it's hard to find specifics.

A couple buildings I've noticed close to me:

corner of 36th & wood
36th & honore
old bar at 36th & damen
wood & 34th pl
Wolcott & 38th st

Any info would be appreciated. I love learning about our neighborhood's history.

  • I don't have pics but I think 36th and Wood used to be called the FBI Tavern. Never had the chance to visit.

  • 36 and Damen was the 3600 Club alot of Daley family members patronized it
