New wine lounge opening in Andersonville; Harry Caray's to hit home run in Wrigleyville
Looks like the very popular In Fine Spirits wine retail store (5418 N. Clark St., 773-506-9463) in Andersonville is adding another component in mid-March.
Next door at 5420 N. Clark St. they're opening In Fine Spirits Lounge, which aims to be a classic neighborhood bar featuring New World wine, classic cocktails and craft beers as well as small plates and cheese platters. The intimate space should be a comfortable meeting place for neighborhood folks looking to chill out for casual nights or wine education seminars. And come late spring (around Memorial Day), they're planning to have outdoor seating on the bustling Clark Street and around back on the patio.
Also opening this spring is Harry Caray's Tavern (3551 N. Sheffield Ave., 773-348-0009) in the old Hi-Tops space in Wrigleyville. It's debuting just in time for baseball season, and it's right across the street from Wrigley Field. Highlights of the menu include the Holy Cow! Burger Bar, the award-winning chicken Vesuvio and Dutchie’s salad. Late-night entertainment will include live bands, deejays and dancing.
