Block Club Chicago Reports on Double Door Reopening In Uptown
December 4, 2018 | Posted by Justin Weidl
After 24 years in Wicker Park and a very public and tumultuous battle to stay there, the owners of the Double Door are venturing way out of the neighborhood to reopen the iconic club —it’s headed to Uptown.
As first reported by neighborhood blog Uptown Update, the Double Door music venue is coming to the Wilson Avenue Theater, located at 1050 W. Wilson Avenue. “Well, the secret is out…. Double Door, welcome to Uptown’s Entertainment District in the 46th Ward,” Ald. James Cappleman (46th) posted on Facebook Saturday morning. The Smashing Pumpkins had a pop-up in the space Saturday, where they said they were “opening up a special vault full of exclusive merch” for fans at the “soon to be new Double Door.”
