The Boundary, a bustling local bar and grill in Chicago’s bustling Wicker Park neighborhood, underwent a complete renovation in just two weeks. The remodel included replacing all booths with rolling high-top tables for customizable seating, and removing the woodwork along the west wall and exposing the original brick.


The Boundary, which is one of several concepts owned by Bottleneck Management, also installed massive quad screens on either side of the fireplace with additional screens throughout. Six TV’s also hang from the ceiling throughout the middle of the bar for optimal sports viewing from any point in the space.

The changes came about after seeing a demand for better viewing opportunities at Bottleneck Management’s other locations, including Old Town Pour House and Howells & Hood in Chicago. (The company also plans to open soon an unnamed location in Minneapolis.)

“We’ve gained an understanding about what creates a vibrant atmosphere for our guests through great food, delicious beer, and an unparalleled audio/visual system,” said Bottleneck owner, CEO Chris Bisaillon. “It’s time to take everything we’ve learned and bring it back to where we started in Wicker Park.”
