The Doctor's Office Bar
Former dental office-turned-convivial bar
Open daily from 4 p.m. ’til 12 midnight
The Doctor's Office Bar salutes its former tenure as dental office for the Masonic Home residents. However, this festive space commemorates its even earlier role as the lodge's game room.
Anchored by an extraordinary 1860s German back bar stocked with McMenamins handcrafted ales, wines and spirits, this small bar offers pool tables, pinball, shuffleboard and other games, original artwork and televised meets and matches. Visits here are just what the doctor ordered. (And no drilling required.)
Pinball was banned from the early 1940s to the mid-1970s in most of America's big cities, including Chicago, where the game was born and where virtually all of its manufacturers have historically been located. We think it's a fun pastime for family and friends... test your skill!
