When Heating & Cooling Pub opens tomorrow night, it will be stand out from the Wrigleyville sports bar scene in a variety of ways. And although it won't be the first place on the Clark Street strip to serve interesting styles of pizza—though its pizzas are creative—it will also stock a massive array of canned beer in what may be the largest selection in town.
Around 81 canned beers will be available, ranging from slim to short, lots of tallboys to oversized. The rock and roll-themed bar, eatery and live music venue from Pearl Tavern owner Adolfo Garcia and partner Carmen Rossi will also have a small selection of cocktails named for rock stars and 15 draft beers at opening.
Back to the pizzas. The opening menu includes nine specialty thin-crust pies in two sizes: 14-inch ($16-20) and 20-inch ($22-26). Specialties include the "Graceland" (pulled pork, Carolina mustard, smoked gouda, barbecue sauce), "The Baked Potato" (garlic, potato, bacon, cheddar, sour cream, chives, olive oil), and "The Boss" (calamari, giardiniera, arugula, red sauce). Plain cheese, pepperoni, or sausage pies are also available, as well as slices ($4.50-5). Check out the full menu below before tomorrow's opening.
