“The Olympics unite people all over the world, and in that same sense, we are excited to create this festive pop-up that can bring people together to connect over this momentous time,” says Big Onion Hospitality Owner and Operator Erik Baylis. “All of us experienced this past year mainly apart, but as we get into the Olympic spirit we can feel as if we are all in this together.”
Fatpour Tapworks will be open seven days a week for dinner, lunch Friday to Sunday and brunch Saturday and Sunday. The pop-up bar in Chicago will open early for special Olympic events and interested patrons will find daily updates via the website and on Facebook and Instagram.
