Get ready, Wicker Parkers: You're getting another sports bar and pizza option. Members of LGN Group (Stout Barrelhouse & Galley, Cedar Hotel) has taken over the shuttered Moonshine space on Division, and will open the second location of their massive pizza-themed sports bar, Parlor Pizza Bar. The first location opened in the West Loop in September 2014 to near-constant crowds in its multi-level space and huge rooftop on Green Street.
Moonshine, which was in business for more than a decade in a stand-alone building with a large outdoor space at 1824 W. Division, shuttered in November. LGN Group reps say that the space will undergo a gut rehab and that they're hoping to open the second Parlor in one year, March 2016. The first building permit was filed on March 5.
Meanwhile, Wicker Park continues to turn over. Division Street is now home to multiple sports bars, while Craft Pizza, Pizano's and Pizza Metro are existing pizza options on or near the Division strip.
