Palatine Assistant Village Manager Sam Trakas said Anthem turned in its liquor license Tuesday, July 19.

On Wednesday one side of Anthem's marquee sign at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Quentin Road stated the business had closed, the other side offered a thank you to the community.

The sports bar portion of the business featured more than 30 TVs, including two 103 inch high definition projection TVs. Anthem also featured a large dining area that included outdoor seating.

Palatine Patch was unable to reach Anthem's owners. The sports bar and restaurant's web site still is active.

Hi Arthur I have not yet been able to talk to the owners. Although I did leave a message. I've heard a lot of good thing about Anthem...if I find out more I will do another update.

The business started on 9/11? Was it known as Marlow's then? I thought Marlow's was doing OK, but somebody spent a lot of money redecorating the place to become Anthem, and then going belly-up a second time?? What gives?

Just to clarify, we were open for 22 months. What led to 'our' demise was too high of a rent, inadequate communication from building management as well as a tough economy. We had a great product, wonderful customers.. But ownership of that building was unreasonable. Nothing more to say. Another vacant building in Palatine.

Two more things ... no, Aaron had nothing to do with Anthem's closing and Anthem's owners were not the same as Marlowe's owners ... two different business owners.

Definitely the taxes, I'd bet. I've known too many businesses in the area's that taxes are killer. And they are forced to close. Definitely talking $50K a year for taxes on many places up to $100K. Sad that taxes are so high yet Illinois is still in debt along with the US.
