Dicks Pizza And Pleasure
Coal-fired pizza began in the early 1900s in New York City by Italian immigrants. The fuel was picked not by choice, but out of necessity. The intense heat created in those early ovens produced an unrivaled dough that was crisp, yet chewy and airy. At Dick’s, we carry on this tradition by using the cleanest burning coal to recreate the simple, artisan experience to honor those original pizza pioneers. Our simple menu allows us to prepare coal-fired pizza using time-honored methods in dough and sausage production, ham curing and use of local produce to achieve the best pizza experience in the Midwest. DICKS PIZZA Enter the diner-inspired first floor to cantilevered Carrara marble tabletops opposite a 30’ full service Carrara marble bar with proper diner-influenced metallic red vinyl, chrome based, barstools and chairs. The white high gloss back bar consists of an array of specially designed shapes, some illuminated with LCD TV’s and others filled with red LED lighting. The anime wall murals captivate just the right amount of color against the white high gloss Cream City brick and are perfectly partnered with the diner appropriate subway tile walls and hexagon tile floors. The open kitchen area seduces diners with the smell of artisan coal fired pizza. Enjoy a ‘curfew’ or ‘non-curfew’ house made shake as you watch the magic of the coal fired oven through oversized 4’ round windows. All brought together by the sounds of nu-disco, urban funk and glam rock, priming the experience awaiting upon the second and third floors. DICKS PLEASURE Follow the hanging bulb lit sign up the sleek stairway to the second level and the dreamlike trip begins. Illuminated with indirect cove, color-changing, LED lighting, the white walls and surreal white surgical floors, mixed with the global sounds, transform this simple concept into an unprecedented, obscure nightlife experience. With provocative anime and DJ booth positioned between two full bars, the aura is set for the standing only second level. The VIP section is intimate, elevated on its own platform, furnished with circular custom white high gloss tables and hand crafted white gloss vinyl sofas. Having an open ceiling, the view to the third level finishes exclusive VIP expectations. While ascending to the third level, the vibrant colors accented by indirect cove, color-changing, LED lighting illuminates the vibe. Glimpses of a bold, electric raspberry bar and grape colored VIP seating, surround a one-of-a-kind shot bar. This eccentric, high gloss Acme Pink custom shot bar features a 10’ high gloss Acme Pink metal birch tree that is accompanied by futuristic ceiling-suspended gleaming white monitors.
