A downtown favorite, Old Town Pour House, opens its doors to suburban diners. A new location with the same great food and wide variety of beer is now open at Oakbrook Center.

Although most commonly known for the vast selection of local and global craft beer, Old Town Pour House Oak Brook offers delicious meal options for both lunch and dinner. The modern take on the classic American menu leaves customers wanting more. From the truffle popcorn appetizer, to the large and in-charge pork belly grilled cheese, these items will not disappoint.
The downtown atmosphere is a low key yet classy place to lunch and is easily converted to a swanky bar on nights and weekends, and the Oak Brook location is more of the same. The outdoor patio at the Oak Brook Pour House features two fireplaces perfect for a cozy yet posh night out with a new flame or old friends. Your choice of seating varies from traditional tables and booths, to bar-style seating and spacious private dining areas. The wait staff is accommodating, friendly and eager to offer any recommendations on food and beer. Multiple flat screen TVs, indoors and out, make this a desirable destination to watch a good game accompanied by an even better beer.
Make sure not to overlook Pour House when debating where to brunch on the weekends. From 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, they offer a menu full of delicious breakfast dishes along with specialty morning libations if beer is not your drink of choice before noon. And, you can go shopping afterwards without moving your car!
Located near Neiman Marcus and across the parking lot from the Cheesecake Factory, you can’t miss Pour House’s modern copper awning. Stop in for lunch, drinks, or reserve an area for a private party for a special occasion. The menu variety and functionality of the space lends its atmosphere to both a family-friendly vibe as well as a nighttime hangout. If you are stopping in during the lunch or dinner hour and are not planning on shopping, definitely take advantage of the valet parking services as parking in that area is tight.
