The Billy Goat Tavern’s most famous location on Michigan Avenue will be closing...LUCKILY, its just 4-6 weeks.
They are planning to complete some renovations and are expected to re-open in February.
Management sent out this email earlier today:
We would like to inform you that starting January 2nd our 430 N. Michigan Ave location will be temporarily closed in order to perform necessary updates of the infrastructure, such as improving electrical, plumbing, and the restrooms. This work is necessary so that our customers can continue to enjoy the Tavern for many years to come! Due to the delicate nature of performing the work while preserving the historic Tavern`s look and décor we anticipate the work to be completed in 4-6 weeks by sometime in February. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks!
