Uprooted, one of McHenry’s newest establishments, opened in September 2016. When owners Dan Smith and Liz Duplain purchased the building, they knew it would take a lot of hard work and dedication to turn it into what they envisioned. Upon entering Uprooted, it’s clear that their efforts paid off. The freshly renovated interior, the elegant yet easy esthetic, and the overall mood of Uprooted is exactly what McHenry needed.
As you take a look around, you’ll be enveloped by the light and airy ambiance. The off-white walls accompanied by the hickory and maple flooring give the bar a great sense of openness. The large, semi-circular bar top, also made of hickory, is located at the corner of the room. In addition to an abundance of wine and spirits, the full-service bar has eight beers on draft, with a variety of craft beers, IPA’s, domestics, and local brews. Guests can make themselves comfortable at the bar top where they can enjoy the company of the bartender and other patrons, or they can grab a seat at one of the high or low top tables for a larger group or more intimate setting. The spacious outside patio gives guests a chance to enjoy the weather with their cocktail, where they can relax in the sun or stay shaded under an umbrella.
With four large flat screen TV’s, Uprooted is the best new spot to catch your favorite Chicago teams. And if you’re looking for your own competition, show off your skills on one of their dartboards! They also have an Illinois Lottery Machine, as well as five state-of-the-art video slot machines. With all the newest games and latest updates, guests can try their luck in Uprooted’s private gaming area.
Best of all, guests can look forward to Uprooted opening their full-service restaurant that will feature quality food for McHenry locals! While the establishment is currently open to guests 21 and older, the restaurant will be open to guests of all ages and will offer steaks, seafood, vegetarian options, and more! So stop into Uprooted now, and stay tuned for all that’s to come!
