Chicago's iconic Zebra Lounge will open a second location in Memphis later this year.

The piano bar is slated to reside in Overton Square at 2114 Trimble Place. The location faces south toward the Hatiloo Theater, situated between Cooper and Florence. A building permit for the bar was requested Monday in a project valued at more than $157,000 to build out a "lounge" but no kitchen.

"The bar will feature local Memphis musicians every day of the year, adding to the ongoing revival of Midtown Memphis," says the bar's web site.

The original Chicago location will celebrate its 85th anniversary at the beginning of July. The bar's website says its founding in 1929 makes it the second-oldest bar in Chicago.

The Chicago Zebra Lounge keeps late hours. It's open from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Monday through Friday, from 7:30 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Saturdays, and 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Sundays.

In the end, the slayer was captured after a wild chase by a posse of ordinary citizens. After his arrest, George Howard Putt told reporters, “I’d do it all again.” The murder spree began on the afternoon of August 14, 1969 ...
