A Chicago Craft Beer Pioneer Since 1990
Welcome to Village Tap, Chicago's premier neighborhood bar. Originally opened by Mike Green in 1990, Mike was regarded as a pioneer in Chicago's craft beer scene. Mike was not only focused on craft beer, but his vision of the Village Tap was truly centered around hospitality. It was this mindset that has made Village Tap much more than just another neighborhood bar, but for many, an extension of their living rooms. We strive to continue to build on Mike's legacy
Craft beer is not a new trend for us, it's something we've been focused on since the craft beer movement came onto the scene in Chicago shortly after we opened in June of 1990.Our 26 rotating drafts have an emphasis on local and domestic craft beers. We frequently host special events featuring a unique selection of specialty beers that we carefully collect for such annual events as our Stout Spectacular in January, Holiday Beer Roll Out in December, and Festival of Barrel Aged Beer event in November.
In addition, we have a world class Beer Garden that has been recognized by Travel and Leisure, Fodors, Men's Fitness, and many local publications.
The ivy covered walls, large birch tree, and cozy fireplace offers a surprising oasis from the hustle and bustle of city life. Thanks to a retractable roof and heating system, the beer garden is always open. Group seating is available for parties and events so contact us today to plan your next gathering.
