ABV Social, the sports bar and restaurant located at 11200 W. Burleigh St., has closed.
The restaurant announced the closing on Facebook, noting:
“We would all like to say thank you to all of our guests for their support over the years; as well as becoming part of our 2nd families. Thank you to all of the staff, past and present (including those not pictured). We will all miss everything from the building, those who entered it, the drinks, the food.....new adventures here we come!”
The restaurant, which opened four years ago, was the last to remain of the four concepts operated by Phoenix Hospitality Group at the Mayfair Collection. The restaurants, which were designed in partnership with The Bartolotta restaurants, included Osgood’s (closed in Feb. 2020), Cafe Grace (closed in March 2020) and Taqueria El Jefe (closed in Nov. 2020). Phoenix Hospitality took over full operations of all the restaurants in 2017.
