Former Downtown Chicago Rainforest Cafe has been cleared for Zoning for a Marijuana Dispensary

Remember that large Rainforest Cafe by the old Rock N Roll McDonalds? Well, you might soon be able to buy weed there…

The former nature-themed restaurant closed in 2020. And since then, Palatine-based Progressive Treatment Solutions have been trying to get a marijuana dispensary in that vacant space. They are now one step closer to making that a reality…

The old downtown Rainforest Cafe has been officially cleared for zoning as a cannabis dispensary. Next, the project will require state approval.
