Plainfield Pub Closes: Last Call at Mickey O'Neill's
After seven months, the Irish pub is out of business.
A week after announcing it was cutting back hours due to slow business, Mickey O’Neill’s has closed for good.
The Irish pub and restaurant, 24102 W. Lockport St., opened June 4, 2012.
On Tuesday, a representative for Mickey O’Neill’s confirmed via email that the pub, which hosted live music and events including a regular trivia night, had called it quits.
“We have unfortunately closed our doors for good,” the email said.
Owner Chuck Rizzo did not respond to a message left by Patch on Tuesday.
Mickey O’Neill’s had recently reduced its hours of operation, announcing via Facebook on Jan. 7 that it was closing on Sundays “seeing as how winter is the slow time for the restaurant.”
O’Neill’s is the second Irish pub that failed to find its footing in the downtown Plainfield location.
In September 2011, Finnegan’s Irish Pub closed after its liquor license was revoked; weeks later, regular patrons and the musicians that frequented the pub paid it a sad farewell.
