Old Town Bartenders

A community like Old Town has so many positives.  This block has continued to develop and grow into one of the most coveted places to live in Chicago as well as a wonderful home to some of the best entertainment (food, comedy, bars, etc.).  It is during this time that we must support our loved ones, our businesses we rely on, and the people who work in those bars and restaurants.  Covid-19 has mandated that our block close many of its establishments.  I am asking that, if you have the means during this difficult time, you consider donating to the Old Town Bartenders GoFundMe page.  
Employees from Old Town Pour House, Benchmark, The Vig, and  Fireplace Inn have been openly discussing how to distribute these funds to employees in need (other bars and restaurants still can be added!) Entrust that this fund will be greatly appreciated in providing assistance during a very difficult time.  Thank you for considering this page... we fully understand that we are simply a few of SO many who are in need.  Share this page with anyone who may be interested and again, THANK YOU!
