Welcome

The Celtic Knot Public House is a locally owned and independently operated authentic pub, located between Orrington and Chicago Avenues, within a short walk of downtown Evanston and Northwestern University.

The menu features pub grub, traditional tavern fare, fresh salads, exceptional entrees and desserts prepared daily.  All of our dishes are made from scratch and local produce is used whenever possible.  An informal Moira’s Afternoon Tea is served on Wednesdays and Saturdays and brunch is served on Sundays.  We offer a solid selection of imported beers and domestic craft brews, a worldwide wine list, whiskey galore and a full line of spirits.

The inviting dark wooded interior includes a cozy bar, great for conversation or quiet contemplation, a spacious and comfortable candlelit restaurant and a private party room. The private room which is called “The Snug” is perfect for just about any gathering that can be imagined.

There is regular entertainment including live music every Monday, Tuesday and Saturday.  The tradition of storytelling is kept alive with monthly storytelling events featuring international, national and local tellers.  A fee is never charged to enter this Public House.

We would be honored if you would pay us a visit and we can assure you that our experienced team of professionals from around the world are dedicated to making your time here feel like you’re home.
