LINCOLN PARK — Gamekeepers Tavern, a favorite sports bar for many Lincoln Parkers over the years — closed its doors over the weekend for the last time.

After opening back in 1986, the bar at 345 W. Armitage Ave., posted a farewell message Saturday on Facebook to say goodbye to its many loyal patrons, calling it “an amazing run.”

The post cited rising rents and taxes as creating a business environment that was “untenable.”

Its owners didn’t respond to a request for comment.
