Wicker Park Bucktown Insider's Guide

Silver Cloud's Future Up In The Air

Silver Cloud Bar & Grill has been a fixture in the Wicker Park, Bucktown neighborhood for almost 20 years to the day. Located at 1700 N. Damen Avenue, the neighborhood eatery is best known for its comfort food (think tater tots, grilled cheese sandwiches & tomato soup, sloppy joes and chicken pot pie). And their Bloody Marys are large enough to be a meal unto themselves. In the wake of new gourmet restaurants and Michelin stars heading into the neighborhood, Silver Cloud has held their own ... until today. 

Silver Cloud is currently closed and a sign in the window only reads: Closed for a short time for decorating.

According to a report published via DNAInfo, the partners have split and co-owner Cy Oldham has opted to sell her shares of the business so she can spend more time with her kids.

Oldham (who has been a business partner for 18 years) issued the following to her employees via email on Thursday:

"After several years of consideration, I have decided to sell my interest in Silver Cloud.  I look forward to devoting more time to my family, and simplifying my life with one business, Fat Cat. Thank you all for your support over the past 18 years. Silver Cloud holds a special place in all our hearts. Special thanks to all of our employees throughout the years, for making Silver Cloud a Chicago institution. I have enjoyed watching my customers meet, get married, and start a family of their own. I have been fortunate to see some of their children grow up as well. Now It's time for me to spend more time with mine." 

There is no additional information available at this time regarding future plans for Silver Cloud. Oldham's business partner was unavailable for comment. But we will keep you posted.
