Chicago Eater – Southport Corridor Gets New Place To Meat as The
Butcher’s Tap replaces Wheel House

A permanent sign isn’t up yet, but Last Call Tavern Group has taken over the former Wheel House space, two blocks from Wrigley Field. The new bar is now open and called The Butcher’s Tap, a nod to the butcher shop that opened in 1932 at the same location at 3553 N. Southport Ave.

The Butcher’s Tap opened recently at 3553 N. Southport. According to co-owner Bob Dalton, “We’ve revived this location (a former butcher shop) and given it a whole lot of TLC.” Gorgeous butcher-block tabletops that look freshly made line up to form a cozy, warmly lit seating area opposite the long bar.
