The revival of Double Door has received an important approval from the City Council and is once again on track to joining the Riv & the Aragon in Uptown. More in the link below from Block Club Chicago.

The famed music club at one point had looked to move up the Blue Line a bit. But when that plan fell through, they set their sights on the Wilson Theatre in Uptown. The rumor of the new location first surfaced when the Smashing Pumpkins used it for a pop-up shop prior to their appearance at the 2018 Nights We Stole Christmas shows (see video below). Double Door management later confirmed their plans in July of 2019, but little had been heard about the project until now. — [eric]
