Roughly nine months ago, the space that is now known as The Whistle Sports Bar & Grill, Tinley Park’s newest sports bar and grill, was rough around the edges, at best.

The restaurant sat vacant for 10 years before co-owners Mark Mikesell and Joe Lombardo bought the space and turned it into a restaurant and bar that caters to just about everyone. The duo bought the new space in Tinley Park just a few months after opening The Whistle in Oak Lawn. The immediate success of that location led them to search out another.
