|Vacant Retail Space at Northwest Corner of Roosevelt & Michigan (via Google Maps)|
A juicy rumor for a high-profile retail spot in the Sloop:
We've heard rumors that something is finally going into the retail space at the Columbian, 1160 S Michigan. The only details that have emerged are restaurant, burgers, and alcohol license. Have you heard anything?
We heard something similar recently about a restaurant coming to the space, but didn't hear the details about burgers or alcohol license (although we figured it would have alcohol for some reason).
Does anyone know anything about this? Seems like a great spot with all the foot traffic at this high-profile corner.

Met with the owner of Burger Bar and Sono Wood Fired at the Windy City BBQ Classic this weekend and he confirmed that they are opening another Burger Bar at the Columbian.
