FitzGerald’s has been a place for gathering since it was built in the early 1900’s. Up to 1925, the frame building at 6615 W. Roosevelt was a roadhouse used as a hunting lodge and sporting team headquarters. As more buildings rose along Roosevelt Road, the property was home to several nightclubs, the best-known being The Hunt Club, which flourished through the 1950’s and early 60’s–acts included Turk Murphy, Bob Scobey and Lil Armstrong. After the Hunt Club closed, the space became the Deer Lodge, complete with pool tables and a fortune teller.

The FitzGerald family bought the building in 1980, and since that time FitzGerald’s has gained a national reputation for excellent live music in a casual, comfortable atmosphere. Along the way, the family purchased the buildings on either side of the club; the corner building now houses FITZGERALDS Sidebar, a neighborhood cocktail lounge as well as a private event space.

Will the owner of Fitzgerald's has done a fantastic job of creating an beautiful socially distanced outdoor space for live music and it's patrons. Highly Highly recommended. Comfortable seating, open air, lots of distance between everyone. Come on out and support wonderful Will and his Fitzgerald's AND our wonderful musicians.

Appreciate them staying open and hosting live music these days. Only negative was that people were allowed to stand in the doorway right in front of us, blocking the stage view for those sitting under the tent.

Been coming to fitzgerald's for years, and LOVE how they've managed to reimagine a happy, safe space in the middle of a pandemic. Amazing music, great safe setup. Been recommending this to everyone, bringing friends as often as we can. I'll keep coming until they shut down the patio.

food wasn't 5 stars because they're not serving any (went to bring back a couple of slices from the pizza place in the strip mall west of fitz) well, beer then was 5 stars - music was fantastic at the perfect volume and a perfect balance - waitress adriana was superb, bringing tall boy cans of shiner bock.

i've loved fitzgeralds for 40 years.

Poor server was running her a$$ off. Maybe two servers Would be better so guests wouldn’t have to wait so long for a drink. Just a thought. We live FitzGerald’s!

Wonderful night for my wife’s birthday
Great 3 piece band

Bit too much walking in front of us throughout whole concert
We had reserved seats from 5.30

A couple of photographers were non stop
Cmon take your phots and sit down
And it seemed people were getting their own drinks walking back and forward - why when you’ve got waitresses trying to make a living

Other then that brilliant
We’ll be back

I’d add on your website
Plenty of free street parking right outside venue
Plus Capri restaurant right next door for pre show meal
Make a resv

actually they don't usually serve food unless it's a special one-off. however i wanted to give a very well deserved 5 stars for everything! the outdoor set up is so well done and spaced out safely and perfectly. i'm hoping they add another row and more tables when this mess is all over. i'm so sorry venues like this have to be hurt so badly during the pandemic. all staff did an incredible job!!!

Over the top quality of experience and safety measures taken during The Time of Covid. We listened to some of the best blues around while seated outside on a beautiful night in a comfortable adirondack chair. We were allowed to bring our own food but bought their reasonably-priced cocktails and beers and tipped the band and waitstaff. Seating was all suitably spaced out for safety, and everyone seemed to comply with masks while getting up or if waitstaff were with you. Absolutely an outstanding experience. The new owners are keeping up with the tradition of great music and good times. Just what we needed.

Food was really not applicable. We were there for music and drinks. Value? No cover, but it is understood that you have to tip the band. I don't go to Fitzgerald's because it's a bargain. I go because the place is a TREASURE. We have reservations for two more events in the near future. They've done a great job adapting to the Covid era.
