Sounds like they're shooting for a "mid-summer" opening...but let's be honest, that seems aggressive.
|Old Advance Uniform Storefront at 1132 S. Wabash|
As a reminder, this building was pretty in pretty bad shape (ahem picture on the right). The ground floor retail was occupied by Advanced Uniform but they were evicted in 2013 and subsequently moved down to 33 E. 13th Street.
The new owners of the building did an amazing job (don't believe us take a look at their website) and while we've been hearing rumors of a restaurant/bar coming to the ground floor it's been pretty quiet since May of 2014.
Hope this comes to fruition, because our mouths are watering over the idea of some delicious BBQ in the Sloop!
