The owner of Chicago's Admiral Theatre is selling the shuttered Phoenix Bar & Nightclub for $1.35 million to Elk Grove Village, which plans to demolish the LGBTQ bar and hold on to the land for future redevelopment, The Daily Herald reported.
Sam Cecola took over the long-standing LGBTQ bar at 1932 E. Higgins Rd. in early 2018; however, the bar abruptly closed last November after 37 years in business.
There are no set plans for the 1.5-acre Phoenix site, Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig Johnson said, beyond some type of future business use in what remains a busy commercial corridor.
