MUSCATINE, Iowa–Though Muscatine has a wide variety of bars and restaurants, Chance Kleist felt like something was missing. He felt the city would benefit from a bar geared towards teachers and other working professionals where they would not need to worry about having kids around and that served a wide variety of cocktails and on tap beers and wines.
“Most folks first reaction when they walk in is that they don’t feel like they’re in Muscatine anymore,” shared Kleist: “We want to change that mindset. Looking for a nice cocktail? 48 beers on tap? No need to go East or West, just come Downtown.”
PR%F prides itself on having an outstanding variety of drinks available, with nearly 50 beers on tap, a large selection of wines, and many cocktails, both traditional and ones they developed themselves. Currently, their PR%F Old Fashioned holds the title of most popular cocktail with it’s substitution of pecan whiskey for Bourbon and addition of orange bitters delighting those who try it.
Along with drinks, PR%F has many food options, including pizzas and delivery from Boonie’s on the Avenue. With Skinny’s Barbecue located in the very same building, it also provides an excellent dining choice for anyone spending the evening at PR%F.
To compliment their excellent food and libations, PR%F Social also provides a sophisticated yet relaxing atmosphere for adults looking for a good place to unwind. Since first opening Nov. 15, 2019, Kleist has taken great pleasure in helping welcome people to Muscatine through his business. “What I enjoy most about working in the Muscatine community is watching when new folks move to town or come to town on business, it becomes a second home for them,” he said. “They feel so welcome by our citizens and businesses.”
Paired with all these positives, PR%F Social has outstanding staff whose expertise and friendliness will make your time spent there as enjoyable as possible. Whatever you come in looking for, bartenders Brian, Gina, and Mackoy will certainly help you find it.
A long time friend of Shelley Sides of the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry and her children, Kleist had heard about the organization and decided to join to see if they could help him continue to grow PR%F. He found their assistance extremely beneficial. “I couldn’t be happier with our investment in the Chamber because of all the hard work Jodi Hansen has put into marketing our business,” he shared. “It’s helped immensely.”
Whether you would like to go out after a long week of work, want to attend a special evening of live music, or book a space for your next party, PR%F Social will fit the bill. You can check them out in person Tuesday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. or Fridays and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. If you would like to learn more about upcoming events or specials, or to ask about private events, you may visit their Facebook page.
