Historic Tavern to Reopen in Old Town

Over on Eater Chicago, they're talking up the revival of a long-lost tavern in Old Town's historic House of Glunz. The building, at the corner of Wells and Division, has been home to the Glunz family's wine shop since 1888. A tavern was added shortly thereafter, but fell victim to Prohibition as did many a storied watering hole. Now, Barbara Glunz, granddaughter of original proprietor Louis Glunz I, is moving to reopen the tavern. The Glunz Tavern will display closely curated culinary artifacts from past Chicago restaurants (like the bar from the original Pump Room), as well as various Chicago ephemera. The menu and the space are under construction, set to finish up by late June. [Eater Chicago]
