LOGAN SQUARE — The group behind Scofflaw, Slippery Slope and Sink|Swim is making moves to open a new bar and patio.
The Scofflaw Group is eyeing the northwest corner of Armitage and Kedzie avenues, directly across from Scofflaw and close to Sink|Swim, which are both on the south side of Armitage, according to a zoning change notice.
The bar pitched for 3200 W. Armitage Ave. would be managed by Danny Shapiro, Andrew Gould and Kristofer Nagy, according to the legal notice.
Paul Biasco details how a bar takes over a vacant location:
The corner space is currently vacant, but was previously a cell phone shop.
The Scofflaw Group is seeking a tavern license for the currently 841-square-foot space, according to the notice mailed to property owners within 250 feet of the proposed project.
No changes would be made to the height of the one-story building, but the group is also seeking to build a 605-square-foot addition and add a 539-square-foot patio.
The remaining outdoor space would be leased to the business next door at 3204 W. Armitage for another bar patio. The building at 3204 W. Armitage is currently vacant.
An attorney representing the Scofflaw Group acknowledged the zoning change request, but directed all calls to Danny Shapiro.
A spokeswoman for the bar group said she did not have any information on the space.
The group has been on a roll, opening Sink|Swim, an oyster-centric restaurant and bar at 3213 W. Armitage Ave. earlier this year.
The group opened "The Heavy Feather," an upstairs lounge above Slippery Slope, in June.
