Avenue Ale House, 825 S. Oak Park Ave., has a new owner and could soon have a new look.

The building was recently purchased for $730,000 by Rafael Gaspar, former executive chef of Quay restaurant, a Streeterville eatery which closed in 2016.

Gaspar, who purchased the property in December under the name 825 S. Oak Park Ave. LLC, said he is planning to do some needed remodeling at the restaurant over the next few months.
