Double Door headed north to Uptown

The famed Double Door music club is moving into the Wilson Avenue Theater in Uptown. The iconic club was booted from its longtime home in Wicker Park last year after a prolonged battle with landlord Brian Strauss. Double Door owners Sean Mulroney and Joe Shanahan promised to find a new home for the club, which now will operate out of the theater at 1050 West Wilson Avenue that Cedar Street Companies bought in 2013.

Dave & Buster’s eyes move to Water Tower Place

Dave & Buster’s sports bar and arcade wants to move from its location on Clark Street in the Gold Coast to a 40,000-square-foot spot on the fourth floor of Brookfield Property Partners’ Water Tower Place mall, according to Alderman Brian Hopkins (2nd). The move would require approval from the city because a liquor license is involved. [Crain’s]

Maple Tree Inn opens in temporary spot

Three months after a fire destroyed the popular Maple Tree Inn in south suburban Blue Island, the owners have reopened the bar and restaurant in a temporary location not far away in the former Tuscan Grill and Pizza at 13000 Western Avenue. The smaller location comes with a scaled-back menu of the eatery’s Cajun and Creole fare. The owners said they’re still deciding whether to rebuild at the former location. [Daily Southtown]

Point B selling Humboldt Park apartments where residents fought addition

Point B Properties is selling a Humboldt Park apartment building where residents last year enlisted the help of Alderman Roberto Maldonado (26th) to block an addition to the building. The residents fought plans by Robert Linn to expand the building, fearing it would result in higher rents or evictions. Now, Linn said, potential buyers have inquired about gutting the building and rehabbing it, which could lead to the higher rents the residents feared — and would not require the alderman’s blessing.
