Neighborhood Spotlight: Wrigleyville

Historic Wrigley Field is home of the famous Chicago Cubs. One of the oldest fields in baseball, Wrigley is known throughout the United States for its ivy-covered red brick back wall and historic red, white and blue uniforms. The fact that the Cubs haven’t won the World Series since 1908 doesn’t stop fans from all over the world from flooding its historic gates. The area is also known for its wild pre-game and post-game nightlife. Filled with restaurants, sports bars, and pubs, it’s a fun place for a rowdy night out (even if it’s not baseball season!)

 KNOWN FOR: Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, good sports bars, and a young party crowd.

 DON’T MISS: A Cubs game! Season runs from April-October; Improv Olympic (3541 N Clark St), a world-famous comedy club showcasing Chicago’s signature improvisational comedy; Goose Island Brew Pub (3535 N Clark St) for Chicago-brewed beer and sports games on big TVs; Smart Bar (3730 N Clark Street) for late-night house music DJs; The Wild Hare (3530 N Clark St) for a diverse crowd and reggae, dancehall, R&B, and more; The Gingerman Tavern (3740 N Clark St) for a more laid-back neighborhood feel.

Take the Red Line train (towards Howard) and get off at Addison.

Great Post!

Baseball is such an American institution and Wrigley is perhaps one of its best representations.
