2910 N Broadway

Moody's Pub

Moody's Pub originally opened in Old Town in 1959, but moved to Larrabee Street when the rents started escalating.  A fire destroyed its next incarnation, so in 1969 owner John Kahoun moved the operation to its current location in Edgewater at 5910 North Broadway.  By all accounts, it has changed very little since it first opened.  It's a bit dark and dank, and looks like something of a dive bar, but the locals sure don't seem to mind.
