WRIGLEYVILLE — Full Shilling Public House, the Wrigleyville sports bar and home to Clemson Tiger football fans, has closed after two decades.

Full Shilling, 3724 N. Clark St., announced its closure in a Facebook post Sept. 19, thanking patrons for the last 20 years and directing Clemson fans to Trace, its sister bar a few doors down at 3714 N. Clark St.

“A very special thank you to all of our loyal regulars, guests and fans,” said a note that was posted on Full Shilling’s door. “Clemson fans welcome to your new home at Trace!! Go Tigers!”

Full Shilling is the latest in a slew of longtime Wrigleyville bars that have closed since the pandemic.

Houndstooth Saloon closed in May, Chicago’s Blarney Stone closed in 2021 and Redmond’s Ale House closed in 2020.

Guthries Tavern briefly closed in 2020, but new owners took over and reopened in 2021.
