Open Haus Stammtisch

6th Floor Skyline Lounge

Friday | Mar. 18th| 7:30 PM

Friday March 18th is a night of fun at our Open Haus! This month’s theme is Starkbierfest! We will have German Bier on tap and food for purchase! 

After the debauchery of Faschingszeit (carnival season), we have started into Fastenzeit (lent). Fortify yourself for this time of austereness by trying some "liquid food" - the genius invention of 17th century Paulaner monk Salvator who decided to help his fasting brothers by brewing a batch of "strong beer" which was rich in nutrients and calories.

To this day, all of Bavaria's breweries create a version of Starkbier during lent. Just like the originator, Salvator from the Paulaner Brewery, most varieties end with the "-ator" appendix: Optimator, Triumphator, Maximator, Terminator, and countless others. During our March Stammtisch Open Haus you can taste some of those delicious brews.

Our Open Haus is a great way to meet new friends, or bring your friends and introduce them to the Haus! This event is located in our popular 6th Floor Skyline Lounge, complete with vintage bar and sweeping panoramic views of the Chicago skyline.

Free parking at 5/3 Bank after 6:00 PM located at Western and Gunnison

Please Note:

On December 21, 2021 the City of Chicago announced Public Health Order No. 2021-2. Effective January 3rd, 2022 any individual 5 years of age or older must show proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to dine indoors, visit gyms, or entertainment venues where food or drink are being served.

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) is requiring that everyone age two or older, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks in public indoor settings, effective Friday, August 20, 2021. Masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower, though masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals in crowded outdoor settings. Please be sure to wear your mask whenever you are indoors at the DANK Haus. If we work together to protect one another, we can slow the spread of COVID-19.
