The Long Room will be getting, wait for it...wider.
For the past few months, construction workers have kept busy on an expansion project for the craft beer-centered tavern at Ashland and Irving Park. Part of the bar's west wall has a huge hole and is boarded up with plywood. Management is building a kitchen in the space neighboring the bar area.

UPDATE: The Long Room is shooting for a January opening for its kitchen, owner Jason Burrell tells Eater Chicago. He's still working a few details out.
