Bats (old Chicago restaurant)

Stuart Foster | Aug 17, 200402:03 PM

Does anyone remember an old Chicago Restaurant called Bats? It was located around Michigan and 22nd
Near Cermack, about a mile and half from the Loop.
I remember it was a fancy sit down deli with really good soup. Me and my brother went there with our grandparents in the late 70's. Also it was the location of the infamous opening of Al Capones vault.
