Ravenswood: New development in old Chicago Ale House space

The old Chicago Ale House space at Leavitt and Lawrence in Ravenswood

It was announced at a meeting this week with Winnemac Park Neighbors and on Alderman Pawar's Facebook page that a "Ukrainian Village business" was vying to open shop in the shuttered Chicago Ale House space.  The neighborhood gave Chicago Ale House a good try but the formula, decor and service did not hit the mark for a neighborhood with many choices just south of Lawrence.

The location is on the north side of Lawrence which is great for the residents around Winnemac Park.  Additionally, a new business will benefit from the Lawrence Avenue Streetscape meant to beatify and make Lawrence more pedestrian friendly. I'd imagine more business will follow as the streetscape progresses.
