Born on the streets of Chicago, Primebar is situated on Cedar Springs next to the empty dwell of the Place At Perry’s, which has since moved on to larger digs just blocks away. The restaurant and bar enjoys costume changes throughout each day, making full use of the facility as a lunch haunt for nearby office traffic, happy hour for the tired and aimless, a dinner landing for the mixed neighborhood that meets gayborhood, and a rousing nightlife that entertains crowds well into the night, and even later on weekends.
Primebar is actually self-titled a sports bar with several trappings that would lead you to believe this is true, such as the many flat-screens tossed about out the building. Then there are the 40 taps. The large number of taps doesn’t necessarily make you a sports bar, look at the folks at Union Bear if that is your determination. Not a screen in sight, but a plethora of beers tapped daily. Continue reading
