Eddie Vedder’s favorite Chicago spot, Stanley’s Kitchen & Tap, is closing its doors after over 25 years of business. After failing to reach terms with the Lincoln Avenue building’s landlord, the Lincoln Park bar/restaurant announced that their last day of business will be this Sunday, April 1st. While the restaurant looks for a new home, it would be impossible to forget all the memorable moments that took place at 1970 N. Lincoln.

Read Stanley’s official statement below:

Over the last few years Stanley’s Kitchen & Tap ownership has attempted to work with the landlord on extending the lease here at 1970 N Lincoln Avenue. Today, we regretfully announce that terms with the landlord cannot be reached. After over 25 years, our last day of business will be Sunday, April 1. To the many families and friends that have visited us over the years, including multiple generations, we have enjoyed getting to know you and meeting your children. To the thousands of amazing former and current employees we have had over the years, your dedication has made Stanley’s a signature staple in Chicago. Stanley’s has been the legacy of Donnie Kruse. He was its heart and soul.

Our goal is to continue Stanley’s tradition. Ownership is currently seeking alternate sites in Chicago for our next home. Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of your community and by including us in so many moments in your lives, from celebrating birthdays, to singing karaoke, to just enjoying that good ol’ fashion home cookin’. We are forever grateful for your support.

A favorite to Chicago athletes and touring musicians alike, Stanley’s was a favorite spot for Pearl Jam frontman, Eddie Vedder. From performing karaoke with Kid Rock in 2007, to celebrating the Chicago Cub’s World Series run, Stanley’s was a frequent stop for Vedder, whether Pearl Jam is town or not. Let’s hope Stanley’s gives Vedder a new building to do karaoke in real soon.

Watch Eddie Vedder and Chicago Blackhawk’s legend Chris Chelios perform some live band karaoke at Stanley’s during a 2012 visit below.
