In 1872, Immediately following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, James McCole built this two-story balloon frame wooden structure with a detached cottage in the rear. Engineer McCole rented the front of the building to a Mr. Lawrence P. Ek who ran it as a grocery store with living quarters in the rear cottage.
Today, the Green Door remains true to its historic Chicago roots.
From its earliest days, The Green Door Tavern has been a neighborhood favorite. It’s warm wooden interiors, decorative backsplash of memorabilia from days long past, and down-to-earth staff have kept its many loyal customers happy through Chicago’s bitter winters to its hot, summer nights.
