Mark your calendar & Join us as we celebrate the Twenty First Anniversary of Delilah’s !!!
Delilah’s opened in 1993 in a space that has been a bar since 1894. We have been open every day since the start and Delilah’s has established itself as one of the most recognized taverns on the planet! Between the nightly DJ sets, world class selection of beer and whiskey, film screenings, art exhibits and great service, Delilah’s has come to be a regular gathering spot for like minded people for more than two decades. So for our 21st Anniversary
we will be throwing another seriously fantastic bash !!!
We will be releasing our Delilah’s Anniversary Ale – a collaboration
between Delilah’s and Three Floyds Brewing.
We’ll have some DJing from Jump Up! Records’ Ska & Reggae DJ Chuck Wren, perhaps another curious visit from Fisto The Clown and all sorts of additional ridiculousness to begin another fantastic year at Chicago’s most infamous cavern tavern.
