CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — White Sox fans could soon have a new spot at the park to wet their whistles.

The team received a permit from the City of Chicago for construction of what it referred to as a "new outdoor bar with premium seating skybox."

The team is planning alterations to two existing 500-level locations at Guaranteed Rate Field to accommodate the new bar, according to the permit.

Construction of the bar will include the demolition of eight rows of seats as well as the rearranging of entry and exit stairs, other necessary modifications and minor electrical and plumbing work.

The estimated price tag for the project is $284,500.

The White Sox didn't immediately return WBBM’s request for comment.
