The Taproom is managed by Tom LeBaron, James (Red) Ogle (former bartender from the Clover bar in Waukegan) and Nick Nicketakis (former owner of the Clover). The Taproom is well-known for their burgers, made fresh daily using ground beef purchased from Cribb Fine Foods Inc.. 

Located just down the street from the Historic Genesee Theater. The Taproom is a local favorite for stopping in with friends for a quick bite and drink before your favorite shows. Located near the Waukegan Court House, CLC, and a number of downtown businesses we are a great place to grab lunch or a drink after work. Within walking distance to the train station and Waukegan Harbor if you want to grab a beer/drink before your board.

Looking for a fun place to hang out with friends? We have large screen TV's to watch the game and Taproom Gaming Machines. 

Interested in a private event space for your next party or meeting? Just down the street is our sister bar, 17 North, which offers the perfect venue for that.

Gift cards available that can be used at TR’s, 17 North and The Taproom. WiFi available.
