After Long 6 Years, Nick's On Wilson To Reopen

Just over 6 years ago, we reported that Nick's on Wilson (1140 W. Wilson) had shut its door. It was a nice, well-managed spot to grab a drink and chat with neighbors. Nick went on to devote his time and energy to his other businesses in the city.

For the past year, we had been hearing rumblings of this location reopening. Recently, his plans were shared in front of other business owners in Uptown, that he plans to reopen this year with security on-site.

Many of our readers have said they longed for a bar-lounge on Wilson so when this opens, we hope you will support it. This spot desperately needs more eyes on the street and foot traffic. As more details become available, we will pass them along.

In other bar-lounge news, "Larry's" will be opening sometime this month in the lobby of Lawrence House from the owner of Heritage Bicycles. Stop by the lobby to check out the progress. More to come!


  1. Solid reputable business's NOT a coffee shop!

  2. Welp economic conditions for a bar there changed drastically as the FLATS properties came online. More post college residents equals more bar business.

  3. Fantastic! I've been hoping a neighborhood bar would pop up soon.
