South Side vegan bar Hal & Al's is undergoing a change in ownership and will be rebranded, bartender Greg Burnett confirmed today. A new restaurant will be housed in the same space at 1297 Parsons Ave. Its name and concept have not been announced, and Hal & Al's owner Jay Cheplowitz could not be reached for comment. Burnett said Hal & Al's will remain open at least through Friday.

A favorite for its all-vegan fare and extensive draft beer selection, Hal & Al's celebrated its fifth anniversary this April.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about this development.
