After 25 years, Cadillac Ranch will have final line dance
After 25 years, the Cadillac Ranch country music nightclub in Bartlett is expected to close later this month, but officials are promising a new concept in its place before long.
Cadillac Ranch's Facebook page announced its last dance will be Saturday, March 26, but the eighth annual St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Country Music Benefit is still expected to take place as scheduled Saturday, April 30.
"Deepest thanks to everyone that has enjoyed, celebrated and partied with us over the past 2½ decades of country dancing and fun!" the Facebook post stated. "We should be back open with sumthin' new, fresh and exciting by mid April."
Tom Curran, a manager at Moretti's, which shares the building at 1175 W. Lake St. with Cadillac Ranch, said it's likely the new place will remain a nightclub, though he hasn't been told exactly what the new concept is.
Both venues are owned by Schaumburg-based Ala Carte Entertainment. Officials there couldn't be reached for comment Thursday.
After Cadillac Ranch's closure on March 26, crews will start work on remodeling, expected to be done in time for the St. Jude benefit, Curran said.
