“Over 5,000 marriages have started here”
Butch McGuire, with a little money borrowed from his mother, opened his famous saloon in 1961, and the legendary bar corridor of Rush and Division was born. With a vision to create what he called the “singles bar.” Butch had the perfect hang-out for local Gold Coast and Old Town singles, most of whom happened to be Butch’s friends. In fact, through cocktails and conversation, it is believed that over 5,000 marriages have resulted from encounters at Butch’s throughout the decades. Butch’s secret from the start was that he broke the taboo and made it respectable, even desirable, for single women to enter the saloon alone. In the beginning, there was a strict policy at Butch’s, that a gentleman always offer his seat to the fairer sex.
