At the Twisted Spoke’s new Wrigleyville location, Chicago’s Harley enthusiasts, baseball fans and off-duty chefs all gather to check out a list of over 60 different Bourbons, including gems like Pappy Van Winkle 20 Year, Black Maple Hill, and (for the truly hard-core) Old Ancient and Jim Beam on tap. Try the Twisted Spoke private label, custom made by Julian Van Winkle, with the “contemporary eclectic bar cuisine” for lunch, dinner, or the Bodacious Biker Brunch. Owner Mitch Einhorn, inspired by the cult movie “Shakes the Clown,” continues to pack the place with advertising for specials like Unwed Mother’s Day, half-price Whiskey Wednesdays, and cameos by Jimmy Russell and other Bourbon legends.
