This hometown bar/restaurant is a throwback to Johnson
City’s “Little Chicago” era.

As a railroad crossroads in the mountain area known for moonshining, Johnson City was a stopover and hideout for some
legendary gangsters, notably Al Capone. Located between
Chicago and Miami, the city was dubbed
“Little Chicago” and is said to have underground passageways that access former “speakeasies.” In the 1920s, local taxi drivers
hauled more alcohol than passengers.
