Siebkens - South / East building is gone.....
 
:crying: I had no idea it was going to be gone when I turned the corner from Lake Street (neither did the locals in the car with me).

I know I know, "all in the name of progress". Still sad to see it go.

Do we know if they are going to spare the bar?

cooleyjb 10-28-2007 08:16 PM

...or if the level of service might get to the level of acceptable...


Last I heard the bar was not going to be razed.

Chulo 10-28-2007 08:19 PM

It would be a shame to raze the old bar... I stayed at Siebkens one time - that was enough.

Patrick 10-28-2007 08:26 PM

Well, they said they were going to remodel.

Hope they at least keep that screen door (at the bar entrance):):) What an icon, that is!!

I heard the bar stays.

Someone hurry and get it protected with historic landmark status.

More lies have been told in that one saloon than in all the singles bars on Rush St.

Thanks for the pics Hacker

Great, I hope they keep going with the wrecking ball and tear the rest of it down.

Sorry, I know it's historic and all, but it's still a dump. :(

Both buildings on the east side of the alley are scheduled to go down. I'm pretty sure the other building will remain until the most of the new condo's are sold.

Compared to what? Siebkens is still in better shape than 99% of the facilities at Road America.

It's a small Wisconsin village next to a lake. If you want 5 stars, stay in Chicago.
You have Lake Street Cafe & The Paddock Club, leave Siebkens to those of us who like the place. I'm almost afraid to mention The Brown Bear or SAL's.

Damn right, and has been since the Can-Am days of the early '70s for me!
