Located in one of the most vital, urban neighborhoods of Chicago, Logan Square/Bucktown, Quenchers Saloon has been offering a truly extensive selection of beer since opening in 1979. Quenchers now has live entertainment six nights a week showcasing local talent.

As new people enter the neighborhood they discover, that despite its 27-year history, Quenchers offers them a home away from home. Quenchers is a place to meet friends, old and new, a place to enjoy favorite beers and a place to listen to good music.

Make Quenchers a stop in your quest to find the "best" bar, your pursuit will go no further; your thirst will be quenched.

A BRIEF HISTORY...
In 1979 the concept of a "beer bar" was a new category. There were no brewpubs and most regional breweries were struggling. Fritz Maytag, with the Anchor Brewery in San Francisco, was the first to reawaken the dormant beer culture. Locally, there were a few "bock" beers that offered something other than baseball to stir a young man's appetite during the spring. Berghoff Beer and Old Chicago Dark were about the only beers that were more than "wet, cold and fuzzy." So when Quenchers opened up with eight tap beers and 40 bottled beers, with no restaurant and no liquor store, they were out on the edge. Tom Forsberg had been working at the Berghoff for a few years and had seen the growing interest in imported beer. Jack Stevens had worked in several Rush street type locations and knew how to create a party atmosphere. A couple of guys from the Logan Square neighborhood also saw the need for an oasis for young urban professionals outside of the Loop and Lincoln Park. These people were the opening cadre for Quenchers Saloon. An early article in the Chicago Reader held the idea of a "fern bar" in such a nondescript environment up for some diversion.
