The building that John Barleycorn calls home was constructed in 1890. The structure has a limestone rock foundation, vaults that extend under the sidewalk, the original tin ceiling, and Cyprus columns and walls, which are over two feet thick. The first saloon opened later that year and was operated by an Irish immigrant who moonlighted as a Chicago Policeman.
