Touring Peoria's Finest Drinking Establishments

UPDATED September 16, 2014 for the
September 17, 2014 Therapy Tour

Wandering aimlessly throughout Peoria in search of another location that reminds us of our beloved (and no longer open) bar; the Wine Experience…

Dr. Larry’s Traveling Therapy Tour is held every Wednesday evening, starting at around 8:00 pm at…


Sky Harbor Steakhouse

1321 North Park Road

West Peoria, Illinois 61604

309 674-5532

Sky Harbor is our official regular Therapy spot, with an alternate on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. You are always welcome and let them know that you are part of Dr. Larry’s Tour. The Klusendorf’s will be more than happy to accommodate your dining needs, will fill your drink requirements and Jimmy will keep you entertained at the piano! You can show up earlier and stay later than the rest of us, but when the Clydsdales stop pulling the Budweiser cart you’ll have to go elsewhere!

Live music features at Sky Harbor.

Jazz Master Jimmy Binkley holds court every Wednesday and Saturday!

Friday's we invite you to join Chris Tarpley at the Sky Harbor Piano Bar.

This week being the third Wednesday of the month of September 2013, the Traveling Therapy Tour will be making another visit to The Publik House. Originally opened by longtime bar entrepreneur “Sully” Sullivan, this was his final establishment and one of his finest. The business name may have changed after his passing but the menu and the ambiance remain in its original form.

Pull up to the large wooden bar and order a pint, try one of their famous hamburgers and fries or another hearty menu item (The blue cheese and bacon fries are highly recommended!). You’ll not leave hungry! Located next to Jim’s Bistro on Prospect Road in Peoria Heights it’s easier to find than a decent parking spot but worth a trip or two around the block to find one. Sidewalk seating for those who can’t get enough of the traffic noise or exhaust fumes.  =^U^=

On the first Wednesday of the month of October 2013 the Traveling Therapy Tour will be again heading downtown to Richard’s on Main. Take the steps down to below Main Street level in front of the Apollo Theatre (directly across from the Peoria County Courthouse and midway between Adams and Jefferson Streets) and find yourself in one of the best establishments in Peoria. Steaks are served until their 4am closing, so don’t expect to get tossed out early unless you become abusive! Behave yourself as we’re expecting another wonderful visit.

I’m sure our favorite bartender will be more than happy to meet our dining and drinking needs for yet another fabulous tour as long as the beer stays cold and the river don’t rise! Guinness on tap and drafts on Wednesday night special will make for an inexpensive night out!
