Mark your calendar & Join us as we celebrate the Twentieth 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 two decades. So for our 20th Anniversary we will be throwing a seriously fantastic bash !!!
We’ll be showing new art by eight different local artists, each showing a custom piece that brings their own perspective on Delilah’s and their personal relationship with the bar. Some of these artists are Chicago painters Tom Billings, John Langford, Emily Rapport, Joey Lala and Erica Huntzinger.
We will be releasing our 20th Anniversary Whisky which is a collaboration with Compass Box Whisky Company in London and we will also be releasing our 20th Anniversary Ale which is a collaboration between Delilah’s and Three Floyds Brewing. These fabulous drink projects are still a bit of a secret so the details will be revealed at the party. Arrive early and thirsty!
There will be some special afternoon musical visitations, plus, we’ll have some all-star DJing including Casino El Camino from Austin, Texas and 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.
