Construction Update
Esquire Theater

 Esquire Theater construction

Our Gold Coast spy sent in a photo tip yesterday.  It’s construction progress on the Esquire Theater (58 East Oak Street).  The building is in the middle of a difficult conversion from slanty-floor auditorium space into flat-floor retail space.  Soon it will be home to a Double Eagle steakhouse, a chain out of Dallas related to Sullivan’s in the Loop; and a Christian Louboutin boutique, the people who make those fancy shoes with the red soles.
