Double Door May Be Heading To Logan Square

After a year-long eviction battle with their current landlord at 1572 N. Milwaukee Avenue, it seems Double Door may just be making plans for a brand new future in Logan Square. Following a judge's order to vacate their current location by the end of 2016,  Double Door co-owners Joe Shanahan (Metro) and Sean Mulroney have submitted a proposal for a beautiful limestone building located in the historic district at 2551 N. Milwaukee Avenue/ 3061 W. Logan Boulevard according to Logan Square Preservation.

The proposal includes a concert area for 650 people plus 2 bars with capacities of 229 and 120 each. And there's a bank vault in the basement area.

Although a "sensitive restoration" has been requested the zoning would remain the same B3-3. A 2am liquor license has been requested. The proposed architect for the project is Jonathon Splitt Architect Ltd and if all goes as planned Double Door could be opening in their new location by the end of 2017.

Although we hate to see Double Door leave Wicker Park, the location sounds like a great fit with the Congress Theater going through a $55 million dollar restoration just a few short blocks away at 2135 N. Milwaukee Avenue and Concord Music Hall also being located right down the street at 2047 N. Milwaukee Avenue. 

As always, we will keep you posted.
