Join me for a Follow Me on Friday of fun, food and drink as I welcome another new business to the 49th Ward–Sidecar Bar, 6920 N. Glenwood (formerly Duke’s Bar). The fun takes place this Friday, February 17th, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Sidecar Bar specializes in martinis, but there are plenty of other drink offerings, including a wide selection of beers, wines and spirits, as well as soft drinks. Owner Colm Treacy generoulsy has offered to provide our guests one free drink of their choosing, plus plenty of complimentary appetizers and munchies.
Colm also co-owns and operates the Glenwood Bar, located one block north of Sidecar Bar, as well as T’s Bar and Restaurant in Andersonville and the Sofo Tap in Uptown. Sidecar is located in the former site ofDuke’s Bar. Colm acquired and renovated the space after the death of Duke’s owner Neil Lifton and the subsequent closing of the beloved neighborhood bar. He opened the new establishment just last week.
Join me after work this Friday as we welcome Colm’s new business venture to the 49th Ward!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
