The friendly and charming Miller's Pub, located on 134 S. Wabash, serves up hundreds of drinks each day, with favorites including: Belgians ales and lambics, beers, seasonal winter warmers, house cocktails, martinis, wines, a variety of whiskies and so, so, much more. The tireless hotspot opens its doors at 10am, beckoning professionals for lunch hour, and doesn’t close its doors until the college kids are ready to crawl home at 4:00 am.
The food menu at Miller’s, luckily, doesn’t leave much to be desired. The laminate pages are filled with delicious additions such as their world famous BBQ baby back ribs, Greek salad, broiled whitefish. sausage, pepper & onions sauté spaghetti; Greek-style lamb chops, prime butt steak, Greek-style chicken, leg of lamb on bread, and an echo of other highly acclaimed dishes.
The historic bar has a rich story that goes back to its inception in 1934. Originally owned by the Miller brothers, the Gallios brother succeeded them as owner and proprietors. The Gallios, however, didn’t have the $500 necessary to change the sign on the pub –so the sign remained. In its history, Miller’s has seen the likes of moguls such as Marilyn Monroe, Mayor Daley, Bill Veeck, Harray Caray and Jimmy Durante. And, in the 80’s, when their building was renovated, they moved to 134 S. Wabash, where another of their businesses, Vannie’s, was located, and they continued business.
If you would like to dine and wine at an establishment that has all of the charm of old Chicago, and its eternal vitality, you should stop by Miller’s. Be sure to gander at the stained glass, photos of celebrities and their collection of vintage paintings.
