Durty Nellie’s


Durty Nellie’s Pub, one of the top live music venues in the suburbs has been the destination for fun since 1972. They also boast a great beer selection and some serious  pub grub.

We recently had the chance to talk to the staff at Durty Nellie’s about the longevity of their business.

Can you give me some history of the restaurant/pub?

Durty Nellie’s was modeled after a real Irish Pub located in County Clare Ireland.

People don’t always think about Durty Nellie’s for food, tell me about your menu.

Over the years we have evolved and changed to better serve the needs of our customers. We now offer a number of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. We continue to search out new vendors to offer our clientele the best ingredients we can find, much of which is locally grown and sustainable. We also have daily food and drink specials and brunch every Saturday and Sunday.

I understand you have an extensive beer menu.

We do, in addition to a full bar, we have an incredible craft beer selection. We offer over 120 bottles. 28 taps and a number of canned beers. Check out our ’Beer Geek Club’.

We feature Durty Nellie’s on our Irish Pub Crawl. I bet you get a lot of bar crawls.

We do, we are such a convenient stop, located just across from Palatine’s Metra Station. Palatine is also within close proximity to Chicago as well as the far northwest suburbs . We are also open until 3 am Sunday through Thursday and 4 am on Friday and Saturday.

Durty Nellie’s is also a well known music venue. What can you tell us about that.

People need to know that they don’t have to go into the city to enjoy great live music . We offer a wide variety of music and a state of the art sound system. The room is large with a capacity of 800 with a generous stage. It is  easy to check on our upcoming bands and tickets on our website.


28 taps + 120 Bottles = An Outstanding Beer Selection
