Sportsman's Club, Chicago, Illinois

The Sportsman's Club opened December 2013, and showcases classically inspired, spirit-forward cocktails that change daily and focus on balance and simplicity. The neighborhood tavern also offers worldly craft beer and terroir-driven wine, as well as an amaro machine, carry-out liquor program and a thoughtfully curated bar goods shop. The original Sportsman’s Club bar, which was located at the same address, served as a local haven for Polish immigrants. In signature Heisler Hospitality fashion, the updated tavern maintains a few lines of its history, from its Sportsman’s Club name to the original art deco bar.

In July 2016 I was asked to create a mural in the ladies bathroom at The Sportsman's Club in Chicago's popular West Town. I am beyond happy to have a mural at this sweet spot. The drinks are delicious and the back patio is the perfect setting for drinks and gathering.
