One Week, Six New Bars Including a Dog-Themed Menu and 120 Beers

Central Standard
For those still looking for a place to drink away St. Patrick's Day. THis week in Chicago welcomed not one, but six new bars for your boozing pleasure. One of them is canine-themed, another was opened by a professional wrestler and one boasts a well-resepected chef. Take your pick.

Central Standard
A clever take on the local food movement focused not on the regional farmers, but instead on the entire Central time zone and the culinary hubs it includes - from Canadian poutine to New Orleans’ sazeracs. The space is decorated with timepiece inspired light fixtures and includes a main dining room, fireplace, 15 seat bar, and lounge seating.

The Squared Circle
The weird bar themes continue with a wrestling-themed space by TNA champion Lisa Marie Varon. Of course, they will show plenty of wrestling on the television in addition to serving house-ground burgers and brick oven pizza.

The Dog's Bollox
Ladies and gentlemen Chicago has a dog-themed bar. Located at the “LAB” (Lincoln-Ashland-Belmont) intersection in Lakeview, it occupies the space formerly owned by Beckett’s. They serve 28 beers on tap to accompany a selection of small, or “wee,” plates. These are their words, not ours, we couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried.

Howell’s & Hood
Journalist at Tribune Tower rejoiced when a bar opened with 120 beers on tap. It is the latest addition to the Bottleneck Management portfolio which also incudes Old Town Pour House, Sweetwater, The Boundary and other. The new space takes up 17,300 square feet inside with an additional 5,700 square-foot patio.

American Junkie
More exciting than the River North opening of this Arizona and California franchise, is who is running the kitchen. It is former City Tavern chef, Kendal Duque. He will serve a menu of elevated bar food such as pork belly sliders and rotisserie chicken to the 400-seat restaurant.
