A bar primarily devoted to serving cider is expected to open this spring in Ravenswood.
The team behind Fountainhead and The Bar on Buena have taken over the former Copper House, 4337 N. Lincoln Ave., and are running it — appropriately enough — as Meantime. The bar will close in March and be rebranded as “The Northman,” chicago.eater.com reports.
The Northman will have more than 100 varieties of cider on tap and in bottles.
“We are excited to share our love of cider with cider and drink fans and hope that they will embrace the first cider-focused establishment in Chicago,” managing partner Aaron Zacharias says in a news release posted at beerpulse.com.
Chef Cleetus Friedman will serve as executive chef of The Northman and Patrick Eberle, former general manager of Sheffield’s Beer and Wine Garden, will be supervising the transformation.
