Prost! Returns to Chicago, Bringing A Taste of Germany to Lincoln Park

By Stephen Fuchs on Email @StephenWFuchs

It has been nearly 3 years since the Chicago German beer hall closed their doors in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, but nearby residents can now get their fix of German food and drink back as Prost! has decided to reopen bigger than ever.  Prost! is back in its original location at 2566 N. Lincoln Ave., but has also expanded by taking up the extra space from the gallery that used to be next door.

From the moment you walk through the door, you’ll find a balanced mix of an authentic old-time German beer hall atmosphere with an American sports bar twist.  Long rows of imported traditional beer hall tables and benches lead up to the bar which features 24 draft beers imported from Germany.  What makes Prost! different from the other Chicago German bars are the 20 HD TV screens, mounted on the walls, broadcasting the latest sports games… soccer included.

With the wide selection of German beers available, Prost! has made sure that there is plenty of authentic German food to go along. Their menu includes popular dishes, such as Schnitzel, Spatzle, Sausage, and Sauerkraut, along with a giant hot pretzel.  Prost! claims that their pretzel will be the biggest you’ve ever seen!  If you find yourself in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, make sure you stop in for a nice cold German beer.
