Jan. 31, 2017 – West Bend, WI – There was quite a bit of feedback to a story posted this week announcing a new restaurant would be opening in the former Benders Sports Bar location, 1102 Paradise Drive in West Bend.

Business partners Oscar Steinbauer Jr. and Nora Sanchez are busy working with family to clean up the site and they’re hoping to open in April.

Some eyebrows were raised when the name of the location, The Hideout Pub, was revealed.

Rosemary Guth wrote on Washington County Insider on Facebook, “There’s only one HIDEOUT in West Bend and it’s on Park Ave!!!!”

Judy Ninke also chimed in. “I think they should choose a different name instead of coping from a bar already in town for 9 years.”

Al Pesavento, the owner of Al’s Hideout was a little miffed as well.  He hoped the family’s plan was just an oversight and a new name would be explored.
During a phone conversation late Monday night Steinbauer Jr. said they had no idea they were copying someone in town. He said they did an initial license check and found nothing but once Al’s Hideout was brought to light they totally understood the concern.
Steinbauer Jr. said he would be discussing options with his business partner.
