After sitting on the market for almost two years at an asking price of  $4.25 million, the owners of the old Cantina 1910 restaurant at 5025 N. Clark will reopen the space as Andersonville’s newest LGBT bar.

Co-owners Mark Robertson and Mike Sullivan have named the new business the Meeting House Tavern. The duo, who also owns the nearby Sofo Tap at 4923 N Clark, will open the bar in the large front multi-level space of the property.

The upcoming 7,000 sq. ft. Meeting House tavern will have 10-12 beers on tap as well as Prosecco and their signature margarita. They are planning a seasonal cocktail menu as well as a frozen cocktail selection. They will also offer their customers free bar games such as darts, pool tables, Skee-Ball, shuffleboard and arcade games.

Bar-style food will also be available, served up by Hutch Restaurant who opened their third location in the back half of the old Cantina 1910 complex at 1477 W. Winnemac in the beginning of 2018.

“A bar is really about the customers, community, service team and overall experience,” said Robertson in a Windy City Times article. “Meeting House will feature a diverse mix of programming and events to complement the games available all the time. Our team will strive to create a safe, no attitude hangout for everyone, every day.”

According to the co-owners, they will be opening the doors to their new space within the next two weeks.
