Neighborhood dive with an edge

Lager House

It masqueraded as a furniture store during Prohibition and emerged a beer garden the minute the 21st Amendment repealing Prohibition was passed. Prior to being renamed The Lager House in 1965, 1254 Michigan Avenue was known as the Doemer Beer Garden, Doemer Brothers Tavern, and The Doemer Tavern. The bakery/restaurant/bar served up great food and drink to city pols, Corktown neighbors, unionists, bookies, bettors, and sports fans alike.
