In 1934, Lottie Zagorski transformed a former grocery store into what now still stands as a local tavern in Chicago’s Shakespeare District. For over thirty years, Lottie’s basement served as a place of anonymity for mobsters, political figures, and anyone else seeking it. Lively parties, horse betting, strip teasing, and all-night poker extravaganzas thrived beyond the doors that quietly sat on the corner of Cortland and Winchester. Lottie became a well-known individual among city figures, acting as an intermediary for both sides of the law. In honor of the woman behind the story, Lottie’s Pub celebrates its namesake with a variety of activities, illuminating the era that defined Lottie’s Pub as a Chicago landmark.
WHEN: Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18
