Founded in 1885, “Marge’s Still is one of the oldest running taverns in Chicago.” Formerly known as Victor Caruso’s Soft Drinks, there was no straight soda being served there. What started as a barbershop and saloon on the corner turned into the neighborhood’s most popular speakeasy. The original side staircase and wooden bar are still on display. The employees at Caruso’s went as far as distilling and fermenting gin themselves “in a bathtub on the second floor,” a practice Marge Landeck would carry on after she took over ownership in 1957. Landeck is famous for being “the first woman in the city of Chicago to obtain a liquor license.” No surprise, Landeck was no softie. It is said, “it wouldn’t be a shock to see Marge throwing full-grown men out of her bar if she thought they were too intoxicated.” Landeck ran the whole show, as owner, bartender, bouncer, and waitress. The bar was given to her children after she died in 2001 and renamed “Marge’s Still” in her memory. Today, the bar provides cocktails centered around the prohibition area and serves above-adequate tavern fare. Be sure to take a second to see the spotlight shone on Marge’s Still covered by Chicago’s Best, with features in Chicago Tribune, The New York Times, and Chicago’s Very Own WGN9.
