Chicago's Molly's: in town for one night only

UK fans of television series Chicago are being given the chance to visit Molly's - a bar which features in the hit show, as well as watching a premiere of the latest show in the franchise.

A favourite on screen hang-out in the Chicago show franchise, which includes Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D, Molly’s has seen characters celebrate, commiserate, and enjoy many a drink over the years to become a conjoined piece of Chicago folklore.

Now it’s time for UK Chicago fans to visit without having to cross the pond. The bar, which will open on 28 March, has been brought to life by agency PrettyGreen and is as close as show devotees will get to a set visit. From Chicago themed beers and cocktails to Chicago burgers and pizzas, Molly's promises to be an experience like no other. Fans will also get the chance to watch a preview of episode one of Chicago Justice- the brand new show in the franchise, before anyone else, ahead of its UK premiere on Universal Channel on the 30 March at 9pm.

The new series follows the State's Attorney's team of prosecutors and investigators as they navigate heated city politics, while fearlessly pursuing justice. Furthermore, Carl Weathers, who has appeared in Rocky and Predator, and Philip Winchester, who appeared in The Patriot and Strike Back, both lead actors from Chicago Justice, will be doing a Q&A session after the screening to talk all about the new series.
