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


Bottle & Bottega recently celebrated the opening of its Highland Park studio, marking a continuation of the brand’s first multi-unit deal that was signed with existing owner Chris Bonk.

“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 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.

The event included a ribbon cutting with representatives from the Highland Park Chamber of Commerce, and featured live music, food and drinks as well as raffles from local businesses. All proceeds from the raffle went to WomenHeart (The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease).
