Taco Bell is planning to venture into unprecedented territory for a major fast food restaurant in the United States. And we’re not referring to their 4000 calorie breakfast menu.
It has been confirmed that they will begin to serve alcohol starting with a brand new store in Chicago.
Taco Bell has confirmed earlier reports that the soon-to-open Wicker Park location, at 1439 N. Milwaukee Ave., will serve beer, wine and boozy “freezes,” according to a spokesperson for the brand.
Don’t get any ideas about to-go cups, though. Alcoholic drinks will be served to eat-in customers only, in a different cup than virgin drinks so employees know if anyone is trying to sneak one out the door.
The new location is also getting a serious makeover compared to its Taco Bell brethren. The interior, similar to designs launched at Taco Bells in Tokyo, Seoul and the U.K., will feature exposed brick walls, murals, communal tables with wooden stools and pops of accent colors such as bright purple and teal.
No word yet on the hours alcohol will be served, but fingers crossed for a Sunday morning mimosa-biscuit taco special.
This has the possibility to end in polar opposites of one another. Everybody shoot out a prayer that it’s a successful run, although the store will likely have an armed guard present like the Waffle House.
