Publican Anker

Upscale Casual

Part of One Off Hospitality Group

Publican Anker is an homage to the early 20th century saloons and breweries that once comprised Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. Our mission is to capture the spirit of those timeless establishments and translate it to guests in a way that feels storied and modern all at once.

With a menu focused on light, clean and rustic fare, Anker will serve as the perfect respite from the chaos of North, Milwaukee and Damen; a place where friends, coworkers and loved ones can gather for a quick bite, a special occasion or a full-on dining experience.
