History of the Wolfs Head

    The story is a simple one.  Build a warm, friendly place to eat, drink and be merry, while surrounded by collectables from around the world. 

    Welcome to the Wolfs Head Restaurant & Bar!  The Wolfs Head is located on property that was once the trail of the Black Hawk Indians,  hunting and war parties to and from the Great Lakes used the trail.  This area was also known for the large packs of wolves, which roamed the countryside, hence the name "Wolf Road".  In more recent history, Al Capone and his merry men were familiar figures at a golf course once located across the street.  On the walls of the restaurant you will find many interesting things to gaze upon.

    In the entryway is a solid brass Chicago Historical Society marker that was removed from the old Lasalle Hotel in Chicago.  The marker attests to the fact that the Whitechapel Club originated on a site next to the hotel and was  a meeting place for all the renowned newspapermen of the past.  The entrance doors (pictured right) were removed from an old church in New England built in the late 1800's.  You will also find a framed grouping of momentos from the famed Pump Room in the Ambassador East Hotel.
All of the booths at the Wolfs Head were removed from the old Pump Room, which closed in 1976.   And the list goes on!
