WELCOME TO CHET'S MELODY LOUNGE CLICK ON THE "NEW" BUTTON TO SEE UPCOMING
Welcome to Chet's!!
The building is over one hundred years old and It has always been a tavern. At that time a trolley ran up and down Archer Avenue. Driving up you may have noticed the road has an unusually steep crown. This is because the trolley tracks were never removed, just paved over!
In 1965 Chester and Clara Prusinski purchased the property and it became "Chet's Melody Lounge" The tavern is located across from Resurrection Cemetery where Chicago's most famous ghost currently resides. Chet passed on a few years ago, Clara retired to Florida for a few years but has recently returned to the area . The property is currently still in the Prusinski family managed by Chet's son Rich and his wife Barbe.
Every year around Halloween, if you watch the Travel or some entertainment channels you will very likely see Chet's featured in the stories associated with "Resurrection Mary" Chicagoland's most famous ghost. I suppose only Chet himself knows the real truth about Resurrection Mary.
