About Pioneer Tavern Group
Pioneer Tavern Group has been at the forefront of the Chicago hospitality, bar and nightlife scene since acquiring Lottie’s Pub in 2002. The Pioneer team has successfully developed three seemingly reserved locations into destination establishments, each recognized for its unique concept. Lottie’s Pub in Bucktown, one of Chicago’s most celebrated landmark pubs since 1934, features a wide selection of beer and liquor as well as a menu stacked with bar favorites. The Pony, in Lakeview, is a spacious, ultra sports bar featuring personalized TVs, rich leather and wood working with a southwestern-inspired menu.  West Town’s newest addition, Frontier, rounds out the group with a game-focused menu, state-of-the-art ice taps, two levels and a spacious beer garden. All venues are ideal for grabbing drinks and dinner with friends, viewing sports games or hosting a private event.
