LITTLE ITALY — Popular Little Italy haunt Three Aces is closing after seven years in business on Taylor Street, the bar and restaurant announced on Facebook Tuesday afternoon.
Known for its large outdoor beer garden and as a hangout for bikers, the bar at 1321 W. Taylor St. will close for good on Sunday.
"Way too many to thank, but just know if you've ever walked through these doors and supported us, we're grateful!" the post reads. "We'd like to invite each and every one of you to come say goodbye, and toss back a few Old Crows with us."
Three Aces' patio will be open Saturday and Sunday starting at noon.
Born in Little Italy and raised in Belmont-Cragin, owner Anthony Potenzo opened Three Aces with his pal Lyle Aker and chef Matt Troost in 2010. Potenzo described Three Aces' menu as: "the Italian countryside meets the American Farmhouse in Keith Richards' basement bar."
On Tuesday, owner Anthony Potenzo said it was time to close up shop on Taylor.
"We had a ball over there. We did everything we set out to achieve," he said.
Potenzo opened Italian-inspired restaurant Charlatan in West Town in 2014. On Tuesday, Potenzo said Charlatan has sell-out crowds.
He said he has "other irons in the fire," but Potenzo declined to talk specifics.
