Ironside Bar & Galley - Chicago
A comfortable sports bar in River North, complete with value-driven, scratch-made food and craft beverages has opened in the former Cyrano's Farm Kitchen space.
Ironside owner-operator Jon Mossberger and his business partner in the project, Steve Mayer, also own and operate Flagship Tavern & Grill in Lakeview and The Stretch in Wrigleyville. Scott Horwitch – former general manager of The Underground in River North and Faith & Whiskey in Lincoln Park – is a partner in the Ironside project as well.
Ironside, whose name derives from the nickname of the U.S.S. Constitution, "Old Ironsides," boasts the look and feel of a ship turned upside down. The interior design is industrial, not boat or nautical themed. Beneath the main floor of Ironside is a smaller and more intimate basement bar area as well.
