Johnny'Z Pour House Opening May 19, 2017

(April 28, 2017) - Johnny’Z Pour House is set to officially open May 19, 2017, in the former Mikey’s location at 10936 Sheridan Road in Pleasant Prairie. With a neighborhood sports bar atmosphere, the business will focus on craft beer and beer cocktails, and serve high quality “pub fare” from a new full service kitchen.

John Ziemba and his business partner Mike Neumann purchased the business and property from the Mike’s Restaurant Group in February. Johnny’Z Pour House will feature 14 tvs, trivia, a pool table, and bags/horseshoes along with outdoor bowling in the summer in the backyard. The menu will include hot beef, Reuben’s, nachos, sandwiches, salads, wings, Friday Fish Fry, Rib specials, and vegetarian options.

“I’ve wanted to own my own bar since I was younger. I like meeting new people and getting to hear their life stories. Actually, my sister bartended in this building when it was Tobin Creek - so I feel like I’m coming full circle,” states Ziemba. “I want this to be a place people feel comfortable – a place they come for a great time, great food, and even better people.”

He continues: “I learned so much from Mike (Cholak) during the nearly nine years I worked for him at the Mike’s Restaurant Group venues. He has been super supportive and a real mentor in this process. This is a good option for both of us.”

“I am doing this for my family. I love our beautiful city and the people here. I love everything local. I want to be a part of the community and have a unique small business. I am excited to create a place that draws people to our community. I hope this is the first of the establishments that I own in the area.”

Hours will be Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to close at 2 a.m., Friday 11 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 2:30 a.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information, visit or call (262) 564-5756.
