The Southern is a central gathering place where the tallest order of the day is a cocktail, conversation and relaxation.

Taking its cue from the laid back way of southern life, this low-down Bucktown bar offers a deep selection of small batch bourbons, micro-brews, hearty whiskeys and plenty of specialty drinks.

When hunger strikes – as it always does when people get together – The Southern satisfies with a menu that raises the bar on bar food. We use ingredients from local farmers and sustainable sources for dishes like fried green tomatoes, slow braised pork shoulder and Charleston-style crab cakes. For bigger appetites, expect to find soul-satisfying mac ‘n’ cheese and grilled shrimp with grits.
