big star opening 11/9

star gazing.

the gang behind blackbird, avec, the violet hour and the publican (pictured, bob briskey photo) are at it again (insert 'bated breath' here) and this time they're using the depression-era honky tonk bars of bakersfield, cali as their muse for big star in the former pontiac café space. translation: tasty tacos, hard-to-find whiskies and tequilas, taco-friendly beers, alt-country music and (sigh of relief) wallet-friendly prices. opens november 9th. 1531 north damen avenue. near north milwaukee. no phone yet.

Thank you to Juli b. chicago for the news and article!

Photo is from Publican; obviously.
