About Us


Established in 2005, Wells on Wells is an independently operated neighborhood dining and drinking favorite of locals and visitors alike.  Our warm, comfortable setting compliments a traditional American pub menu and the full bar is sure to have something for everyone. A friendly, fun and attentive staff will do its absolute best to make your experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible. If there’s something extra special you’d like from us, just ask.

In addition to a cozy sidewalk café, our sixty-person beer garden – complete with a giant flat screen – makes Wells one of the most popular outdoor venues in the area. Located in the heart of Chicago’s historic Old Town, we face the famous Second City Theater and are steps from North Avenue Beach, The Chicago History Museum and Lincoln Park, not to mention the rest of the dynamic nightlife Wells Street has to offer.

Come join us for a great bite to eat, a cold beer (or two) and a great time!
