Despite modern amenities including high definition TVs and 23 beers on tap, Lottie's Pub owes much of its charm to its fabled history. The bar's namesake, Lottie Zagorski, gained renown in the 1930s, offering space for mobsters and politicians alike to congregate in the basement of Zagorski's rathskeller. This pattern continued into the 60s, until a crackdown on crime saw Lottie brought to trial on gambling charges. After a series of ownership changes, Lottie's Pub has reinvented itself as a neighborhood spot that eschews criminal activity for NFL games, a full menu of bar eats, and a weekly stand-up comedy open mic night.
