Much has changed around the Double Door’s Milwaukee Ave. location the past 23 years, but the venue has always been a constant. Sadly, the club’s legacy at that location has come to an end today.
Locked in a legal battle with their landlord, the Double Door has been in a precarious spot since 2015. Monday at 11;30 am, a Cook County Sheriff’s police officer made things official by placing a “No Trespassing” sign on the club’s door.
This does not necessarily mean the end of the Double Door. Owners have been petitioning to re-open at a new location in Logan Square.
Hopefully they can succeed, continuing the positive impact they’ve had on local music throughout the years.
