French Korner Holiday Party


Houndstooth Saloon, the Wrigleyville bar that recently made a splash as Griswold's at Houndstooth, a "Christmas Vacation" pop-up, is transforming the corner of Clark and Roscoe Streets yet again — this time into a full- blown Mardi Gras celebration. Starting Tuesday, Feb. 4, French Korner at Houndstooth will bring a slice of the Big Easy to Wrigleyville with the release of our new southern flair menu! February will be a month of Mardi Gras music, food, drink and merriment.

Guests are welcome to grab a Hurricane and head into our Mardi Gras themed pop-up. Decorated with beads, masks and more beads for an Instagram-worthy pic. The Bourbon Street vibe and décor continues, with food and drink specials, events and a full slate of entertainment
