Your Classic, Friendly, Neighborhood Pub

Lauers Pub Stands With the Changing of Time

Lauers Pub is located on 154th Place which was off State Line Road. The part of State Line Road that was also known as "sin strip". That's because this section of Calumet City was packed with taverns and liquor stores.

They were everywhere.

First Impressions

A Typical Sports Bar

Pulling into the large, fenced-in parking lot you'll notice how wide open and well lit everything is. This parking lot is video monitored 24 hours a day and patrolled by the Calumet City Police Department, so there's no "funny business" going on over here.


As soon as you walk in you're greeted with a friendly "hello" and a smile. Depending on how early you arrive, you may even meet the man himself, James Lauer. He's been opening this bar in the early afternoon, everyday for over thirty years. He usually sticks around for just a couple of hours, so if you want to meet him - make it early.

There's usually a small wave of patrons that arrive soon after Lauers Pub opens. Everybody knows everybody and the fun soon begins.

There's talk of sports mostly, but an unusual topic (every now & then) usually pops up sooner or later. And there's no telling what subject that could be. Everybody is welcome to comment & put in their "two-cents", in fact, it's encouraged.

There's five televisions in the pub, and every single one of them can be seen mostly from anywhere in the pub. If you can't find a sporting event to watch, there's always a friendly, pretty face behind the bar to talk to.


If the patrons alone aren't entertaining enough, Lauers Pub has the usual pub style dart board and a $1 pay-as-you-play pool table. They've got Wi-Fi and an Internet jukebox. There's even a bar-top video game in the corner.

*You are now allowed to gamble, LEGALLY, on video gambling machines in Lauers Pub and other taverns in the state of Illinois*

Food & Drinks

There's not much on the food menu, but there are FREE hot dogs and $1 hamburgers and polish sausages. Occasionally, during the cold months, you can get a delicious bowl of homemade chili for just $2. On Sunday's (during the Chicago Bears game) you can have some the BEST shredded beef sandwiches in the region - on the house!
If you got a few extra bucks, get a Doreen's oven baked 12" pizza for just $7.50

Lauers Pub also has peanuts, popcorn, pretzels, pistachios & potato chips...oh yeah, cashews too.
