Frankenstein's Bar, 2235 West Howard Street, Chicago, Illinois.

Frankenstein Lunch Lab & Boogie Castle was a couple of doors west of the Fish Keg.
I went there most Thursday nights in 1979-80. I got in even though the legal drinking age had just changed back to 21 years old from 19 years old for beer and wine in Illinois.

Many times I'd stop at the Fish Keg, pick up a pound of shrimp, perch or some other totally delicious fresh fried fish, 1/2 order of French fries and go into Frankenstein's, sit down at a table and order a beer with dinner. YUMMY!

They had a nice sized dance floor, a couple of pinball games, and good music.

Visit the souvenir shop.

  1. Had a tremendous amount of fun in 1975-1976. Disco was in and I made my way to Frankenstein's Wednesday - Saturday first as a patron then as an employee till I was given an ultimatum...shave the beard or else. I chose "or else" and went back to being a patron. The night would end with the playing of Edgar Winters' Frankenstein

    Found my first love. She was a nursing student at St. Francis in Evanston. I remember buying her the large body of Jean Nate. She probably still has some left...it was a big bottle. I have fond memories of her.



    I did make many a stop at the Fish Keg as well as IHOP
