Bigby's Pour House, a craft beer bar in Addison, will open a Rolling Meadows site next month at 1649 Algonquin Road, the former site of Caribou Coffee.
The new bar will tentatively open Aug. 8, said President Ed Simbol, but it will be a while before the kitchen opens. The featured food will be tapas, he said.
"The original Bigby's in Addison is very homey," said Simbol. "We will do our best to make this one as much like that as we can. The existing (wall) paneling helps."
Bigby's is taking advantage of a recent Rolling Meadows City Council action, creating a liquor license that does not require the sale of food to be half an establishment's income.
At this time the bar will only serve beer and wine, but it is possible "high-end craft cocktails" could be added in the future, Simbol said. The Addison location does not serve hard liquor.
