Looking for a new bar to check out this week, well you’re in luck as the owners of the popular bar Bull & Bear are opening their new venture, Public House, Thursday January 13, 2011. Located at 400 N. State St. in Chicago’s River North area, this 10,000 sq. ft. bar/restaurant hosts some of the latest in beer/liquor dispensing technology. Not only do they have 25 beers on tap plus their own Public House brew thanks to Goose Island, they also claim to have over 100 different types of beer in general for you to enjoy. And the best part is, for most of them you don’t even have to leave the table.
With 12 table tap booths spread throughout the bar, you and your guests can order your favorite beers without even having to leave the table. And unlike other places that have table taps, Public House’s taps will also dispense liquor. Drinks are charged by the ounce and servers must approve you for up to 24 ounces before you can begin to pour. Once you hit the 24 ounce limit you will need to request the waitress to re-enable the tap, but only if she deems that are you not too intoxicated. Each table tap is also outfitted with an LED screen which will tell you exactly how many ounces you’ve had to drink. It seems like a pretty cool system for those who get annoyed with slow service.
Aside from the novelty of the table taps, Public House also offers up a great place to watch the game. With 27 plasma TV’s spread throughout as well as one 84″ HD Wall, you’re sure to have a good view of the game from every seat in the house. And if you’re looking to throw a private party, the elevated private room boasts 1000 sq. ft. of space as well as the latest in Wall Tender technology. So what are you waiting for, get your friends together and hit up Public House this Thursday, January 13, 2011, for the grand opening. There will be celebrities and promotions going on all weekend so stop on in or check after the jump for a rundown of what you can expect for the grand opening.
