FatPour Now Open
Fat Pour Officially Opens Today
Updated 9-7-12: At long last Wicker Park's FatPour will be opening this Friday, September 14th at 4pm at 2005 W. Division Street. The Grand Opening Party is from 4pm - 2am. See you there!
The folks behind the highly anticipated Fat Pour are also behind the very successful 404 Wine Bar Co, Jack's Bar & Grill and the Irish Oak. Fat Pour will be moving in to the space vacated by Adobo Grill over a year ago at 2005 W. Division Street in Wicker Park and here is what we know:
Fat Pour is expected to be a combination of sports bar & beer hall. Although construction just started 3-4 weeks ago, progress is being made very quickly and the outdoor patio permit is already in the works. The new bar is scheduled to open now as early as mid-July of this year.
What you can expect:
Unlike Adobo Grill, Fat Pour is taking over 7,000 square feet and 2 floors of space. The feel will be vintage and "lofty" with booths throughout. Fat Pour will be serving an assortment of import, domestic, specialty and craft beer that will be available in 2 sizes: the pint and the Fat Pour. For food you can expect gourmet pizza and burgers.
The space will include a 2-story glass-encased keg room and full bars will be on both floors. Private and semi-private rooms will be available for special events and 4 table tap booths are available to rent.
When we asked about the tvs (for sports viewing) we were told the plans for those are still in the works but it sounds like something innovative may be heading our way.
