As we all continue to navigate the day-to-day with much uncertainty, it’s been heartening to see people come together and support each other as best they can.
The mandatory closure of bars in Chicago due to COVID-19 will undoubtedly leave many in the service industry struggling to get through the next couple of weeks, if not months.
The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge has been serving the community for decades—from bringing Jazz greats to the stage to acting as that one last stop after everyone else has had their last call.
This fundraiser was started by concerned customers. Some of us get the benefit of working from home, and some of us have an income that isn’t impacted by this pandemic. If we weren’t stuck inside, we’d still be looking for somewhere to hang out, have a drink, and listen to some music. To that end, we want to keep our tabs open.
Please show some love to the dedicated staff and keep tipping, even as the lights go out for a while.
