Southport & Irving (SIP) space for lease
Southport & Irving, better known as SIP is currently for lease. According to the marketing description:
“Southport Corridor Corner Restaurant and Bar. Fully built-out restaurant space with outdoor component. Corner location. Southport and Irving \”SIP\” is located in Chicago\’s Lakeview neighborhood and a part of the City\’s well know Southport Corridor. Within the last several years, the area\’s gained momentum as a trendy shopping and dining district, offering a nice mix of popular chains as well as independently owned specialty shops and restaurants. The corridor gives out-of-town shoppers and locals a chance to stray away from the ?Mag Mile shopping district and into a real Chicago neighborhood. The area boasts some of the high demographics in the City and is easily accessible from all over the City.”
On the plus side, it states that “Ownership will entertain a partnership with experienced operators,” so it appears a restaurant of some-sort will remain. See the full listing here.

Johnny Was Southport Corridor now under construction
Construction is now under way for Chicago\’s first Johnny Was store at 3510 N. Southport Avenue. This space was formerly Spendid LA, which closed in March, 2019.
\”Just like the universal and timeless appeal of a great song, Johnny Was designs clothes that cross cultures and defy trends. With a bohemian spirit and a true sense of authenticity, we take our inspiration from anything that is beautiful, genuine and special—a striking piece of artwork, the luxurious hand-stitching on a vintage dress or the natural simplicity of a vibrant bougainvillea.
Our signature embroideries and effortless silhouettes are unparalleled. After more than 30 years of our artisan-inspired stitch work and luxe fabrications, the undying allure speaks for itself. For the woman looking to showcase her personal style, while appreciating the thoughtful details of timeless techniques. An aesthetic that embraces our California-based lifestyle but always with a global vision.
It’s the gorgeous details in life that make it beautiful, and that’s what we strive to create with Johnny Was. Embrace the beauty, look beyond and enjoy the journey.\”
