Tommy Nevin’s poured its first pint on September 13, 1990. The Irish-themed restaurant/pub was the brainchild of Steven Prescott, who named the restaurant/pub after his grandfather, Thomas Nevin. Thomas or “Tommy” as was affectionately known was a WWI hero and devoted father.

Today they are best known as Evanston’s local pub, which also happens to be an Irish one. For St Patty’s-day-goers it was a special treat to hear authentic Irish tunes, but the regulars know it’s part of what makes Tommy Nevin’s great – every Sunday of the year.

Their carefully crafted beer menu is equally impressive and reason to celebrate any occasion.
