Bar Native’s Guide to Chicago Happy Hour



Illinois Bill SB 398.

Assuming Gov. Bruce Rauner manages to buck the trend and stay out of prison, his eventual legacy might be the signing of the Culinary and Hospitality Modernization Act which on July 15th, legalized Happy Hour in Illinois after a twenty-five year absence.

Chicago area bars and their elated patrons wasted no time welcoming back the popular specials, and now there are hundreds of Happy Hour specials to sort through.

That’s where Bar Native comes in.

We have created the most comprehensive list of Happy Hour specials in the Chicagoland area for your enjoyment and edification.

Searchable by Day of Week, Bar Name or Neighborhood, and updated as new specials are announced, welcome to your new, one-stop Guide to Chicago Happy Hours!
