McGovern’s closes in Sun Prairie

The corner of Main and Bird Streets in Sun Prairie just became a lot quieter after the news that McGovern’s Club and restaurant, a longtime social establishment at 818 W. Main St., has closed for good.

The 84-year old restaurant struggled in recent years and was also delinquent in taxes, according to media reports. The Sun Prairie Star reported the company was thousands in debt, and channel3000.com said the restaurant closed due to public health department standards it couldn’t afford.
