Bill Murray Is Opening a Caddyshack Bar in Chicago


It’s a Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the proprietor of a new Caddyshack-themed bar.

That’s right folks, it seems our favorite amateur bartender, Bill Murray, has also done some acting on the side. Now he and his brothers are planning to open a Chicago bar based on one of his movies from the 1980s. Apparently it’s about golf or something. The king of the karaoke ambush and kin have worked out a deal on a location in the Crowne Plaza Hotel near O’Hare International Airport, according to The Daily Herald.

The Chicago location follows the original Murray Bros. Caddyshack restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida, which serves pub fare including a Chicago dog. With the tagline, “Eat, Drink, and Be Murray,” the bars lean hard into their cinematic theme, with dishes like a Double Bogey Cheeseburger and CaddyShake, servers dressed in caddy uniforms and a charity golf tournament. Unfortunately, there’s no themed cocktail menu to pair with your wedge salad, but knowing Murray’s proclivity for pouring shots, we trust the bar program will be top notch.

The Murray brothers plan to open the bar in late summer 2017 if all goes well. Until then, you can work on your golf game. Just be sure to bring along proper accessories and don’t let those pesky gophers get the best of you.
