Offbeat ways to celebrate Christmas 2021 in Chicago

Don’t like moving with the maddening crowds?

Looking to take your festivities off the beaten path?

Want to celebrate Christmas in Chicago in your own way?


May I recommend…

Butch McGuire’s Christmas celebrations

You might find a recommendation to visit a particular pub on Christmas a wee bit strange...why not some other pub?


But, this ain’t just some pub.


This is Butch McGuire’s, which used leftover Christmas decor from a Goldblatt’s to deck themselves for a Christmas party in 1960…

...and they’ve been doing it ever since!


And over the years, it’s expanded to include a double decker train that runs through the bar, among other things.


AND they donate a lot of the profits from the celeb to the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.


Entry: Free.


Date: Check website


Time: Varies by date (see website for details).


Location: 20 W Division St, Chicago, IL 60610.
