Bar 63’s Business Certificate Revoked

Mary Chappell | The Phoenix

A popular Loyola themed sports bar near Lake Shore Campus in a school-owned building recently had its business certificate revoked by the state of Illinois due to unspecified non-compliance with tax laws.

What this means for the long run for Bar 63 — named for the 1963 men’s basketball championship season — is unclear.

In the short run, the bar at 6341 North Broadway appears to be closed — or at least is not able to sell anything without risking more penalties.

A bright green sign from the Illinois Department of Revenue was posted this week in the window of the establishment.

The green sign indicates failure to abide by state tax laws, sources said. Due to taxpayer confidentiality laws, they said they cannot provide exact details of the revocation.

“Persons who engage in the business of selling tangible personal property at retail after their certificate of registration has been revoked are guilty of a class A misdemeanor and will be subject to criminal prosecution and penalty,” according to the sign.

63 has a full bar and a menu which includes traditional bar food, such as chicken wings, burgers, fries and other appetizers, according to its menu on Grubhub.

The bar is one of two bars in the area frequented by Loyola students. Bulldog Ale House — located at 6606 North Sheridan Road — and 63 both attract students on Thursday nights, unofficially dubbed as “Thirsty Thursday.”

In March, hundreds of Loyola students went to Bar 63 to watch the men’s basketball team during the NCAA tournament, The Phoenix reported.

63 couldn’t be reached for comment by the time of publication.

    Verona Italy: Riding a Segway PT inside the second largest Roman city!

    From the perfect “Roman” warp of the streets, squares, walls and the Arena amphitheatre, to the pure “Romanic” and “Gothic” style of the beautiful churches and monuments you may visit during the tour.

    Let’s be ready to discover the most beautiful and interesting part of the city, the most ancient, facing south and cradled by a bend of the river.

    After we get to know our Segway PT, from viale Colonnello Galliano – parking and meeting point for the training – we reach Porta Palio and ride past the roundabout along the cycle path facing Porta/via Piccoli.

    Another easy cycle path leads us straight to Castelvecchio, a residence of Della Scala family, whose internal restoration is a marvellous example of contemporary architecture. Riding our Segway PT we cross the Della Scala bridge and pause in the park on the other bank of the river, to enjoy a view on the bridge and castle. Afterwards we cross corso Castelvecchio to get onto via Roma to reach piazza Bra and the Arena.

    Exciting moments of deep romanticism may be lived thanks to our Segway PT that will lead us until Giulietta’s House, in via Cappello.

    Mercato Vecchio’s court, Piazza dei Signori and Arche Scaligere will follow, until Santa Anastasia and piazza Erbe (Verona’s Roman forum).

    Tour proceeds Under the “portoni” of Corso and Porta Borsari (ancient collection point of the bishop’s duty) and back, on the stradone Porta Palio.
