Tavern on Rush closed in October, after serving as a staple at the corner of Rush Street and Bellevue Place for 25 years.

Tavern on Rush was part of the Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants group – which called it "a hot spot for locals and visitors alike." It opened in April 1998.

The owners of the building wanted to put a new restaurant concept in the space.

Meanwhile, the owners of Tavern on Rush have hinted at reopening a new location.
