WELCOME TO Wicker Park

“Wicker Park became the abode of Chicago’s wealthy Northern European immigrants. The district proved especially popular with merchants, who built large mansions along the neighborhood’s choicest streets—particularly on Hoyne and Pierce, just southwest of North and Damen−known then as Robey. Hoyne was known then as “Beer Baron Row”, as many of Chicago’s wealthiest brewers built mansions there” – Wikipedia. What a great story, right? Those homes are still standing today. Many are renovated to 21st century standards inside, but the classic facades will never be touched. Today Wicker Park is bustling with long mustaches, tight pants, and fixed gears as far as the eye can see. Grab something quick at Etta, or plan a night out at Schwa after laughing at the Comedy Club House on Ashland. Afterwards, stop by Velvet Hour for the best drinks this side of the highway.

Cards Against Humanity’s Andy Kushnir’s take on the neighborhood: 

Grab your fixed gear bike, your handlebar mustache, plaid shirt and… get the hell out actually because this former hipster haven has been recently discovered by finance bros and Big Ten alums. Home to artsy nonsense flea market Renegade Craft Fair, twice a year you have the opportunity to buy a $48 wooden bowl! Not feeling like walking? Feel free to stand in line as you wait to be seated for the most over-rated brunch in Chicago at Bongo Room. Not for you? Then head over to Emporium where you can be a full-grown adult playing pinball while a bad band you’ve never heard of screams into a microphone. End your excursion by watching nine self-absorbed humans perform a poorly attended improv show in the basement of Crocodile Lounge.
