Chicago, IL, November 17, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Jameson Commercial is pleased to announce four business brokerage deals at local bars in just two months - all brokered by Mike Costanzo working closely with Brian Troglia, a dram (liquor specific) attorney. The liquor licenses for all 4 deals were grandfathered due to Costanzo’s expertise in facilitating the buyers purchase of the corporate entity whether C corporation, S corporation or limited liability company.

1) The Spread, a 4,000 sq. ft. sports bar in the epicenter of Lincoln Park located at 2476 N. Lincoln Avenue, the center of “The Taste of Lincoln Ave” Summer Festival, sold for $200,000.

Lonie’s new location in River North features live music seven days a week with a tavern, P.P.A and late night license. Lonie’s World Famous Underground Wonder Bar was located on Walton Street, between Rush and State, for 21 years prior to the building be sold and having to vacate in just 30 days.
