When Butch McGuire opened his saloon in the spring of 1961, it began as a place where the local Gold Coast and Old Town residents could drink. Butch served cold beer and great food. The recipe was one of success. The little neighborhood spot became an instant classic, and has been ever since. We are still a family owned and operated saloon. Butch's son Bobby has taken over and continues with his dad's original hands on approach.
