About


Band of Bohemia is looking to add a taproom specifically for our beer-drinking guests!! Nestled away from our main dining room we have a 1400 square foot space used for overflow and private dining space. We’d like to extend our platform to our loyal beer drinkers by adding a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of a Michelin starred restaurant to a more cozy, dare we say Snuggery, boasting a den like feel perfect for imbibing upon unique brews, both in-house brewed classics and some local favorites. 

We are looking for $50,000 to add architect fees, a second bathroom to comply with the City of Chicago codes, a lift to allow access for those with disabilities, re-route our current plumbing, signage for the taproom, a keg cooler, and if possible a few TV’s to watch our favorite sporting teams win, a pinball machine or two (because pinball is awesome), and a few bar stools. If we were able to surpass our goal, a bottling line and keg washer (exceeding $20,000) would be most beneficial…

…but first things first. 

A little about us. 

We are Band of Bohemia, the first ever Michelin starred brewpub in the world! We started out as a humble brewpub that got thrust into a bit of infamy and acclaim and began to create a more traditional restaurant setting, although, not really traditional, more of a tradition obscured. And while we enjoy this aspect, we saw a need to fulfill our greatest desire, to supply our neighborhood and Chicago-land with our unique style of beer brewing, as well extend our offerings with some of our local favorites, as we are in the area of Chicago known as Malt Row, we would like to have our brewery friends join us as well. 

We ask you, the public to assist us in making this dream come true. What we offer is fairly unique, be it dinner for two in our Michelin Starred restaurant, brewing with our brewer on our 10bbl system, home brewing in our kitchen with your friends, making a beer which we would then create dishes for, acting as a stagiere in our restaurant getting a behind the scenes look at the operations of Michelin starred restaurant, and more.

Risks and challenges

Common risks of opening anything in Chicago are time. Time for permits to go through and contractors time to get the work done.
