Dusek’s Board and Beer is the beautiful combination of high end pub food and specialty beers in Chicago. Guests here are served brunch or dinner in a historic building with a funky interior, making it a great hangout place for groups of all kinds. Just below the establishment is the Punch House, where strong alcoholic punches are served on tap for people to enjoy with an order of churros while listening to the DJ play some tunes.


Parties of all sizes are welcome to make reservations with Dusek’s, which they can do online through Reserve. Pre-ordering food is also allowed by filling up an online form at least 48 hours from the desired schedule. Guests can also indicate if they want to make Good Luck Jazz Brunch reservations.

In case tables are booked, walk-ins are accommodated in the restaurant’s comfortable waiting areas where they can sit and enjoy a pre-dinner beverage at the Main Bar, Punch House, or the Tack Room.
