Dining With Denise Neil

Raven's Room is now open in old Pour Haus space

The new Raven’s Room Restaurant and Rock Bar opened on Thursday in the former Pour Haus Restaurant and Tavern space at 1021 W. Maple, which is at the corner of Seneca and Maple.

It’s owned by Jeravicious Raven, who is planning a grand opening in a couple of weeks.

Raven’s Room offers a menu that features burgers, fries, onion rings, fried mushrooms and other fried-food bar specialties. It has a full bar and soon will have beer on tap. (The fire that closed Pour Haus in 2012 damaged the tap system, and Raven is getting it repaired.)

In July, he’ll begin offering live rock music. In the meantime, he plans to have acoustic musicians in the bar.

Raven used to own Lexi's Restaurant and Bar at 3008 W. Central. Pour Haus burned in August of 2012, and the fire was eventually ruled an arson.
