WEST LOOP — Six months after opening, Packing House on Randolph Street is closing to the public.

The modern restaurant concept, which opened in April at 1113 W. Randolph St., replaced the sports bar Market, which was co-owned by White Sox executive Kenny Williams.

A Packing House manager, who declined to be named, said that the restaurant is closed to public so that staff can focus on a number of private events. She did not know when the space would reopen to the public.

"We're not closing [for good]," a manager said Friday. "We've had a huge influx of private events."

The restaurant was the site of a break-in earlier this week. According to Chicago Police, three offenders entered the business at 2 a.m. Oct. 13. The offenders damaged items inside the restaurant and fled with several other items, said Officer Bari Lemmon, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

Police would not disclose the types of items that were stolen from the business. An investigation is ongoing and no arrests have been made.

The restaurant was open last weekend.
