Bottle & Bottega Debuts in Downtown Highland Park: Help ‘Uncork’ a New Business

Bottle & Bottega Inks First Multi-Unit Deal with Existing Franchisee to Open New Highland Park Studio  

Chic and Sophisticated Art and Wine Studio Debuts in Highland Park

The wheels are off. Bottle & Bottega has parked itself permanently in Highland Park. The premier art and wine concept announced today the official opening of its new permanent studio location in Highland Park, conveniently located on Sheridan Road. The studio will serve as a hub for public and private painting parties as well as corporate partners seeking a unique and vibrant setting for their events.

“We’ve been running events throughout Highland Park the past few months and we’re so excited to finally have a home to host daily events,” said Chris Bonk, owner of Bottle & Bottega Highland Park and Bottle & Bottega Arlington Heights. “After witnessing how much fun people were having in my Arlington Heights studio, I knew that Highland Park was the perfect fit. I can’t wait to welcome our loyal fan base and new guests to join us in Highland Park and toast over a glass of wine.”

Highland Park residents and architecture aficionados are sure to recognize the new studio, located at 1894 Sheridan Road, for it’s historic Prairie Style architecture synonymous with famous Highland Park resident John Van Bergen. The building, which was constructed in 1926 and is the last standing example of Van Bergen’s commercial work, formerly served as a furrier for 90 years. The building was also featured in the movie Risky Business in the famous Porsche chase scene with Tom Cruise.

Bringing out the creative side in all of us regardless of skill or practice, Bottle & Bottega is one part artistic adventure and one part cocktail party. Through a blend of hands-on DIY art sessions, on-site professional instruction and, of course, a glass of wine, Bottle & Bottega helps guests create a masterpiece that they can be proud of taking home. Guests have the option to indulge in a variety of artistic mediums, including canvas, wood pallet, glassware, mosaics, Illumin-Art and various seasonal offerings. Whether enjoying a birthday, anniversary, mitzvah, bachelorette party, date night or just a girls’ night out, Bottle & Bottega offers a warm, chic and sophisticated DIY art studio where guests can relax, have fun and explore their creative sides.

The official ribbon cutting and grand opening after-hours party will take place on Wednesday, March 21 at 5:30-9:00 p.m. There will be complimentary beverages & snacks, live music, a taste of their 10 different art forms, and a raffle for prizes helping the charity WomenHeart (The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease)! Check out the secret Fur Vault and enjoy plenty of lively conversation!
