    The Grafton closes after Sunday night: “It’s just got this charm. You walk in and you feel like you’re in a sweet little pub in Ireland. I’m getting all worked up just talking about it."

    LINCOLN SQUARE — Longtime regulars and former Lincoln Square neighbors returned to The Grafton Pub and Grill this week for one more pint before the beloved watering hole closes for good Sunday.

    Malcolm and Andrea Molloy and general manager Ambrose Cappuccio are closing the bar at 4530 N. Lincoln Ave. after nearly 20 years in the neighborhood.

    “We count ourselves lucky to have been a staple in Lincoln Square for almost 20 years,” the trio wrote in social media posts. “The bar has been at the center of our family for so long and we will miss it dearly.

    “We are very proud with what we have accomplished over the past 20 years. As new chapters unfold for our family and our staff we hold on to the great memories we have all shared at The Grafton.” Read more HERE
