It’s game day, and you’d like nothing better than to sit on a deck somewhere, dig into a steak and enjoy a cold beer.
Now you can.
Construction is nearly finished on a new 1,000-square-foot outdoor bar next to the Tin Can and Harem Urban Lounge on Michigan Avenue near The Stadium District.
Managers of The Big Deck Bar — who also are partners in the Tin Can and Harem — envision a spot where people can kick back and relax like they do in their own backyards.
“We’re going to have these buckets of beer from the Tin Can so you don't have to run in and out,” says Dave Sell, one of the managing partners. “We’ll have a grill out there for game days, and we’ll roll out a big screen so you can watch the games.”
Though the Deck will be accessible from both the Tin Can and Harem, Sell said they’re billing it as its own bar.
“We’ll have street-level access, as well,” he says.
The Deck will have seating for up to 55. Sell says they plan to be open for business by the weekend of Aug. 6. Updates are available on the Tin Can’s Facebook fan page.
