CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Halloween will be the last night for one downtown bar.

Memphis on Main will close after Wednesday. Owner, Rod Sickler, says business has been great but he couldn’t secure a long-term lease and the bar’s liquor license is due on Thursday.

Sickler took over the bar in 2016.

He also owns 51 Main, right next door. Sickler says 51 Main will remain open.
