Wicker Park & Bucktown Nightlife in Chicago

It's time to hang with the locals and explore the fantastic nightlife of Wicker Park! You are sure to have a good time in this neighborhood full of young artsy folk, single twenty-somethings looking to meet and greet, and an older crowd ready to have a night on the town. The eclectic social group is a direct reflection of the eclectic vibe of the 'hood - there is certainly something for everybody here. If you want to see music, there are several options, but Subterranean, a multi-level venue with a different genre on each level is a fantastic choice. Head to Vintage Wine Bar for a little class. Here you will be surprised by the delicious menu and drink selection. If you appreciate an outstanding cocktail you will not be disappointed at the Violet Hour, designed as an old Chicago speak-easy. For a bar that is simple, casual, yet stylish, check out Small Bar. Pint Bar also provides a casual feel where you can kick back with your buddies on their comfy couches. 6 Corners will give you that laid-back sports bar feel as well. Those who are in search of something vibrant, upbeat, and are ready for a strong drink should head to Salud, who are ready to serve you tequila and a lively dance floor. However, to really get to the heart of Wicker Park, you cannot miss the off-beat dive bars, such as Beachwood Inn, a small bar complete with a jukebox and an artsy crowd. Or hang with the cool hipsters at Danny's Tavern, a barely marked bar disguised as a house. Finally, if you want cheap, Crocodile will give you the best deal. Every $5 you spend, you get a free pizza! Now you will have money for the cab ride home.
