Cubby Bear North in Lincolnshire has kicked off the new year by closing its doors. 

Its marquee, which typically promotes upcoming band performances, simply reads “Closed.” Its doors display messages declaring, “Closed. Happy New Year.”

The longtime restaurant and band venue on Milwaukee Avenue hosted a New Year’s Eve bash. A promotion of that event was the last Tweet sent out by the business. Its Facebook page has been deactivated.

No one answered the phone Friday afternoon at the Lincolnshire location, where the number remains in service. An employee reached at Cubby Bear’s Chicago location said the Lincolnshire restaurant closed Dec. 31 and “as far as I know” it is not reopening.

She directed further inquiries to Cubby Bear’s real estate management company, which could not immediately provide information.

That place was a smelly dump

Never cared for the joint. Poor parking, too expensive, many employees had an "attitude". Good bye, most things related in some way to the word Cub usually stinks.

Maybe they got wind of 'Clark' and decided to bite the bullet before the inevitable killing of the Cubs' brand by Ricketts took firm hold. Afer all, why prolong the suffering when you've been diagnosed {cursed} with a disease [the Disneyesqueification of the Cubs and Wrigley Field]. Guess they thought that suicide would be an improvement over continuing under any affiliation with the Cubs/a brand that's being raped.

It really is too bad the Cubby Bear North closed. I guess upper management didn't care about their loyal customers and all the groups who had events planned there. Shepard Middle School, Deerfield plans their 8th grade graduation party there every year. Hopefully the organizing group can find a new venue.
