Our idea is so modest…it’s almost radical: A bar. With food. Old Town Social offers a juxtaposition of equal parts casual and sophisticated—no guest list, no cover, no dress code. The 10,000 square-foot sporting parlor carefully pays tribute to the most treasured elements of the iconic neighborhood bar, with a handcrafted return to the basics. But make no mistake—as low-key as the attitude may be, Old Town Social is deliberate in crafting a nostalgic experience for a more mature and sophisticated clientele. Located at 455 W. North Avenue, Old Town Social is a collaboration of seasoned hospitality veterans Chris Dexter & Chris Freeman, as well as award-winning Executive Chef Jared Van Camp. Serving exceptional food and drinks within uniquely designed settings, Old Town Social is open Monday through Friday from 5pm-2am; Saturday 11am-3am, and Sunday from 11am-2am. For more information please visit or call 312-266-2277.
