The building that houses Schubas is a brick and masonry neo-Gothic treasure that’s been a Lake View neighborhood landmark for 100 years. Built in 1903 as part of a project undertaken by the Schlitz Brewery, the building was one of hundreds erected at the turn of the century. This project included structures housing everything from corner taps to opulent hotels, and stretched from Minneapolis through Wisconsin to the far reaches of Chicago’s Pullman district.

Schubas remains one of a handful of these elegant buildings still operating as a saloon. In 1988 Chris and Michael Schuba bought the building, and set upon refurbishing it to its original glory. This extensive renovation included restoring the 30’ Brunswick mahogany bar, tin ceilings and walnut wainscotting in the bar room, and a full makeover of the back music hall. The ornate exterior, featuring two-toned herringbone patterned brickwork, copper parapets and cornice caps and two Schlitz globe logos in terra cotta bas relief, has been carefully cleaned and restored. Several years ago the second floor saloon-keeper’s flat was changed to an elegant private banquet facility, complete with its own mahogany bar.

In the spirit of its public-house roots, Schubas is open daily for lunch and dinner and weekend country brunch. They offer music entertainment nightly, and have become a staple of the Chicago rock scene.
