About The Pub

The Pub is the University of Chicago’s own private club. Annual memberships are good from September 1 – August 31 are just $10. Currently, due to COVID restrictions, the only individuals eligible for memberships are current UCID holders (students, staff, faculty, etc). Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to allow non UCID holder or alumni guests. We hope to invite guests back later in the year!

Come and grab a seat in one of the Wisconsin Oak booths and soak in the University of Chicago ambiance. The walls are adorned with large black and white photos of John D. Rockefeller and William Rainey Harper, a panoramic photo from the Michigan v. U of C game on November 5, 1927, and an aerial view of Hyde Park from 1952.

The Pub boasts 32 taps, 100+ bottled beers, and a wide variety of wines and cocktails to choose from. When it opened, there were only 8 beers on tap and 25 bottled beers, but over the years the tastes of the Pub’s diverse clientele have helped shape today’s offerings, with many of the best beers added at a patron’s suggestion.

The Pub offers a full menu of standard pub fare, including homemade burritos, burgers, and a variety of weekly specials like .20 wings on Mondays. Come in for a pint and enjoy yourself.
