Terrace on Clark
A new riverside bar has opened just in time for patio season, al fresco drinking season and baseball season. The contemporary bar, with ten 60-inch flat screen TVs, features an eye catching vinyl wave ceiling that illuminated the L-shaped bar. The beverage menu is beer heavy with draft beer and craft beers including Lagunitas IPA, Kentucky Bourbon Ale and Brewdog Punk IPA as well as signature and classic cocktails.

The Harding Tavern
Dark wood bar, deep brown leather stools, vintage amber light fixtures and a subway-tiled open kitchen are the warm accents around the new bar from the owners of Café Con Leche. The sophisticated space is named and inspired by The Harding Theater, which operated in Logan Square from 1925 to 1963. Now the bar serves elevated bar staples including pork belly skewers, Thai chicken wings and steak frites.

Harry Caray’s Seventh Inning Stretch
The latest from sports bar and restaurant franchises takes sports fans and food fans to the seventh floor of Water Tour Place. The 23,000-sq.-ft. complex features Harry Caray’s sports memorabilia, HDTVs throughout the dining room and bar, floor-to-ceiling windows and, of course, a menu of classic American comfort foods including mac ‘n' cheese muffins and Kobe beef corn dogs.
