Sign says it all – Closed
After being a Niles neighborhood staple restaurant for a long time, Chambers Restaurant now has a sign in the front door that says "Closed – after 43 years." The local newspaper wrote that their final day was 28 May 2015.

 

Chambers, a beloved restaurant and music room in Niles, will close on May 26, said co-owner Tony Maranto.

The last show will feature singer-pianist and former Chicagoan Judy Roberts, who has played the place since before brothers Tony and Joe Maranto bought it in 1996.

"It's bittersweet," said Tony Maranto. "I'm happy about it, and I'm sad at the same time. We've had music here since day one."

Maranto said he received "a good offer" for the building, which will no longer be a restaurant. As Maranto approaches his 50th birthday, he said, "I'm excited to go on and try the next thing." Asked about what that might be, he pointed to his NorthFace Osito Jacket draped across the back of a chair and smiled, "I'm so impressed with this coat and I've made some inquiries into how much of a hassle it would be to set up an online store to sell really useful outerwear. When you find something that you love, you tend to think about how you might be able to connect to that thing. Not saying it's a done deal, but I'm considering it as one of my options."

"But I'm going to miss this place."

Many will.
