Helmed by well-known hospitality entrepreneur Matt Eisler and renowned designer Kevin Heisner, Heisler creates unique, concept-driven drinking and dining establishments. Taking an unconventional and organic approach towards each individual project while infusing their distinctive sensibilities, Heisler develops award-winning concepts that are current, refined, and timeless. Together, they have not only become known for their forward-thinking projects, but also for their efforts to mentor and champion the people they work with.
Current projects in their diverse portfolio include Bar DeVille (Food & Wine ‘Top 100 American Bars’ 2011, 2012), Nightwood (Michelin Bib Gourmand Award 2011, 2012) and Trenchermen (Bon Appétit ‘Top 50 Best New Restaurants’ 2013). Their newer taverns, Lone Wolf, The Revel Room, and Sportsman’s Club have been recognized not only for the talent Heisler has harnessed behind the bar, but also for the overall experience they have curated (GQ and Chicago magazine ‘Best Bars’ 2014). In May 2015 Heisler introduced Pub Royale and have plans to open three additional concepts by the end of the year.
