There has been so much increased violent activity since Nouveau Tavern has opened. Close this place down! Bad things are caused by it. There will likely be more shootings if this place remains opened.

They are also disrespectful and loud. Every weekend night at 3:00am loud noise and occasionally gunshots are heard when their clientele let out.

Please do something before people die.

Agree completely! Boycot this restaurant and all other tenants throughout Chicago that this landlord has.

This is a great place! The 2 previous posts were hearing shots from east of the river or around Montgomery park. Nouveau Tavern is just another establishment in the hundreds around the area! Little tip, if you want quiet, move to the suburbs! I'm sure you can find an IHOP that will fit your dinning pleasure out there. Its funny they're not complaining about hearing emergency vehicle sirens throughout the night also!

That's ignorant to say move to the suburbs if you want quiet. Living in this family friendly area of River North and having a place open up that's clearly creating negative effects to this area is a problem. Don't downplay the fact that there's a correlation here and that the shooting happened next to a kids park.

do something ?? surely you jest?

Blacks have been killing blacks in chicago at a rate of 500 people a year for years and no one cares.

The black president, attorney general, state county and city law enforcement jessie fillmypocketsfirst jackson, al notso sharpton no one anywhere cares.

Do you realize or even care that there are thousands of uninvestigated, unsolved homicides of black people by black people in the chicago police department files and no one cares.

so no one gives a big fat rats rear end if there are gun shots in the city, they been shooting guns killing and wounding folks since I left in the late 60's and no one cares.

heck I don't even care cause I moved out years ago..........
