Do you look forward to relaxing and enjoying music performed by a live band on the weekends? If so, you need to head down to Gruben’s Uptown Tap in nearby Plainfield, IL.
This American-style bar hosts Open Jam sessions every Thursday at 8 pm. You never know who will take the stage, from talented local violinists to bands on the verge of signing a record label. On Saturdays at 9:30 pm, the bar hosts live performances by local bands.
While you listen to your music, you can enjoy some of the great food served at Gruben’s. Order one of the starters to share with your friends. The fried pickles are the perfect combination of crisp and crunchy, as well as the Full Belly Nachos topped with everything you can imagine, will fill you all up. If you’re looking for a full meal, try one of the sandwiches like the Philly Cheesesteak or the Chicken Caprese. There’s also a whole list of specialty pizzas — or you can design your own!
Gruben’s is located at 24035 W. Lockport St. in Plainfield, IL. The business started as a tavern and a liquor store in the 1940s and was purchased by the current owners in 1987. It has long been a staple in the Plainfield area and in the summer, the beer gardens and patio attract many a customer. They open for lunch daily at 11 am and stay open until at least 1 am.
