French 'dive' lounge next in Ukrainian Village


As with most Matt Eisler ventures (Empire Liquors, Angels & Kings), the French-focused Bar Deville aims for a chilled-out neighborhood vibe.

And how excited are we that he's bringing this new project to Ukrainian Village—which is also home to a host of top-notch hangs like Old Oak Tap, Sonotheque, Tuman's and Five Star Bar & Grill—next Monday.

A few highlights that'll certainly make this one of your favorite new watering holes: three cool rooms in which to hang, particularly the back closet bar for daily beer and shot specials; hand-crafted cocktails from the Margarita to the Manhattan; and its hidden appeal in a non-descript building on the corner of Huron and Damen.
