Bentley's Pub is a downtown bar with a neighborhood vibe. We'd love to be your new go-to spot for craft beer and cocktails.
Bentley's Pub has had a long history in downtown Champaign. It started as Ole Ace's in the 70's and has since transformed into Bentley's in the 90's. Much of the history can still be seen in the original tin ceilings, original bar and foundation. But as of June 2016, owners Ashley Buerkett and Eric Meyer are working to revamp a few things while still trying to keep the original charm and history of the space. We began with the drink menu.
Our General Manager, Matt "Fu" Kucera has been a bartender in the area for years and has worked hard to create an amazing array of house-infused cocktails, also known as InFUsions. We also offer many other seasonal craft cocktails and an ever-changing list of craft beers. But if that's not your thing, we have a full bar complete with PBR, Jameson, Fireball, BudLight, and all of the classic options that will never go out of style.
