“Photo Tripping” is a new series for Yahoo Travel that has me visiting America’s top cities, exploring off-the-beaten path spots to experience the best tastes, sounds, and sights the city has to offer.
The Green Mill, in Chicago’s uptown neighborhood, is more than just a great jazz bar. It also has a lot of history. Back in the 1920’s, the bar was the favorite hangout of none other than legendary gangster Al Capone. Capone’s buddy “Machine Gun” Jack McGurn owned the place, and Capone even had a favorite booth where I got to sit and drink.
WHY GO: To step back in time to the days of Al Capone and gangsters … and to have a shot of Malort.
