Wilmette trustees approved liquor licenses for The Rock House and The Big Black Dog Tavern Tuesday as part of the consent agenda.
The Rock House, which currently serves as a musician practice space, live music venue and coffee shop, plans to begin serving beer and wine in mid- to late-August.
The spot plans to meet with brewers in the fall to add a custom microbrew to the menu. Owner Chris Karabas said the goal is to make The Rock House a place where locals can come before or after dinner to have a drink and listen to music.
The owner of Gilson’s is behind The Big Black Dog Tavern and Grill, which is under construction now and expected to open this fall in the former Crystal Cave’s location. Check back with Patch for a full story on the business.
