Vivial has replaced their menu outside their front door with a “We are closed” sign today. We reached out to Vivial asking if they had closed for good and they responded “Yes”. We also checked OpenTable which confirmed no tables are available any longer. Vivial had re-concepted last November from Spencer’s Jolly Posh Foods.
The building on the corner of Southport and Belmont that houses Bel-Port Liquors is currently for sale, and once a buyer comes through, the liquor store will be closing. Across the street, the building that once housed Flat-Top Grill, Burger Boss and Dojo Chicago is mostly vacant, so this area of Southport and Belmont could look quite different within a short period of time.
From the real-estate listing:
“The first floor is occupied by Bel-Port Liquors, which currently operates under a month-to-month lease and will vacate at the time of sale. Half of the first floor and the entire second floor is currently vacant, which was previously used as storage space. A new owner can take advantage of this opportunity by gut rehabbing the existing building, into a luxurious mixed-use; retail and apartment building. Each floor has one in-place bathroom and one room with plumbing in-place for a second bathroom.
The immediate area is populated with restaurants and bars, and many national retailers. The property’s proximity to major thoroughfares and public transportation make it an ideal spot. This is a perfect value-add opportunity to a new investor.”
The price is listed at $1,250,000 and is approx. 5100 square feet. You can see the listing here.
