Their Story

Esquire owners, Bob, Joe and Pedro, graduated from the University of Illinois during the 1970s; after exploring the world for five years, they returned to Champaign, banded together, and bought Esquire Lounge in 1975. Together, they grew the establishment into a casual sports bar suited for all ages.

Every customer at Esquire can help themselves to unlimited bowls of peanuts. The owners believe that there are 10 good things about peanuts and would like to share it with their customers. For example, peanuts have lots of vitamin A and it is better for you than smoking. If you are curious to know the other benefits, feel free to ask the owner yourself.

Esquire offers a wide variety of entertainment and events throughout the year. From game night specials to cigar nights on the first Wednesday of every month, and everything in between, there's something for everyone to experience. Though Esquire does not host their own pool tournaments, there are enough tables for you and your friends to start one. Esquire owns four full size pool tables for their patrons. If you want to enjoy a relaxing night watching games over beer with friends, there are plenty of large screens for you to do just that!
