You'll have to go a few weeks without pies. But Pilsen, get excited, because Pleasant House Bakery will reopen in early June in the former Nightwood building, 2119 S Halsted St, according to the Chicago Tribune. The new location will be dubbed the Pleasant House Pub and include all the separate Pleasant House entities—bakery, breads and produce—served alongside beer.
The pub will open with dinner and brunch at first, then add early morning hours. The pies will continue to be made at the Plant in Back of the Yards, accompanied with Pleasant House Pub beers that will be brewed by Whiner Beer, also opening soon in the Plant. Heisler Group's Kevin Heisner (Bar DeVille, Lone Wolf, Pub Royale, Queen Mary Tavern, Revel Room, Sportsman's Club, Trenchermen) is partnering on the project—he owns the Nightwood building and is co-owner of both Whiner Beer and Four Letter Word, who will supply coffee. According to the Tribune, this project is not part of the Heisler Hospitality group.
The move is followed by an announcement from Pleasant House in February that Pleasant House Three Oaks and Pleasant House Brewing Co. would be closed permanently in Three Oaks, Michigan.
