Spartan beer house


“I haven’t seen a better business than catering. You win by catering to people’s appetites, needs, and dreams. ” – Unknown

For Spartan Ale House partners Michael Poulakidas and Ron Woerman, that quote rings true.

“We love the restaurant business simply because of this fact – every day when we open those doors, we have the chance to feed people great food that makes them feel better. We design our spaces so to make everyone who walks in feel comfortable and welcome,” says Michael. “We get a chance and we take it seriously.”

In 2016, the partners opened the first Spartan Ale House in Aurora. Five years later, they found a second home for their modern sports bar, opening on Rt. 59 in Naperville.

Sports bars are affectionately referred to by some as “not your average sports bar”, as patrons can come and enjoy great food and drink in a warm, relaxed setting and choose to watch the game on one of our many high-definition televisions. definition.

“For me, there is no other company like this,” says Ron. “It’s not just about providing great food. It’s about building community within the walls…and then extending support beyond. For us, we believe that we only have success and the community around us.

The Spartan Ale House offers a variety of carefully prepared dishes, such as hand-breaded calamari, salads and wraps, pizzas, wings, steaks, pastas and seafood. Pair it with a great list wines, beers and cocktails, and you have the makings of a great meal.

With a passion for community and a desire to make people happy, Michael and Ron invite you to relax and spend the day or evening enjoying great food and drink and the people you are with.
