About us

Established in May 2015.

Wise Owl Drinkery & Cookhouse is a refreshing return of the local neighborhood tavern. Infused with a full-service kitchen, we serve Traditional American comfort foods prepared fresh & made from scratch daily. On the drinks side, we provide a fine selection of cocktails, wines, whiskeys & local brews. Now for everything fun, we throw in a variety of classic & vintage video, board & table games, weekly events, live music, an outdoor patio & free parking w/ complimentary shuttle service to United Center events including all Blackhawks/Bulls home games, concerts & events. We're also just 1 block north of the UIC Pavilion. This is the perfect destination for any occasion. The unpretentious atmosphere combines nicely with the local take it easy rhythm.
