About anker


from chef paul kahan and one off hospitality group, Publican Anker is a neighborhood gastropub that pays homage to the early 20th century saloons and breweries that once made up Chicago’s Wicker Park. 

With a menu focused on clean and simple pub fare, Anker serves as the perfect respite from the chaos of North, Milwaukee and Damen. it's a place where friends and loved ones can gather for a quick bite, celebrate a special occasion or enjoy a full-on dining experience with an expansive wine, beer and spirits selection to match.

ordering anker to go? you can find our menus for delivery and pickup on caviar, doordash and grubhub.
