Goose Island Pub has arrived at the Hard Rock Hotel from Chicago, replacing the The Ainsworth and offering their famed selection of craft beers, plus a "pub-style" dining menu.

Open daily from 11 a.m. to an unspecified "late," the former 3,500-square-foot sports bar and cocktail lounge has been given a brighter makeover, with much of The Ainsworth's dark tones removed. Light wood tables and new "urban" fixtures have replaced the leather banquettes and stools. The five TV screens remain in the dining room, stripped of their original ornate frames.

On the beer menu, the $8 "Spruce Goose Flight" of four beers to sample, vintage ales and the "rare Bourbon County brand stout," aged for for two years in 35 year Bourbon barrels and priced at an impressive $100.

For diners, a Chicago twist on pub grub, with many items designed to share.
