About Us


Established in 2005, Wells on Wells is an independently owned and operated neighborhood dining and drinking favorite.  The warm, comfortable vibe compliments a traditional American pub menu and full bar that is sure to have something for everyone. A friendly, fun and attentive staff will  make your experience an enjoyable and memorable one. If there’s something extra special you’d like, personal requests are welcome.

In addition to a cozy sidewalk café, our sixty-person beer garden – complete with 80-inch flat screen – makes Wells on Wells one of the most popular outdoor venues in the area. Located in the heart of Chicago’s historic Old Town, the bar faces the famous Second City Theater and is 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.
