Wicker Park / Bucktown, Chicago –
Half upscale sports bar, half restaurant, and one hundred percent not the typical Division Street hipster locale, The Fifty/50 draws a loyal clientele of sports fans, young professionals, and college students.
Two large TVs strategically positioned in the sidewalk seating area broadcast the latest sports scores, beckoning to passersby to stop in for the game and sip a few signature bacon Bloody Marys while they’re at it. Once caught, patrons can expect a rowdy game-fueled evening, where cheering fans crowd around the two full bars to pump their fists at over a dozen more flat-screens tuned to the action.
Comfy booths and narrow aisles of high-top tables on the ground and mezzanine levels are packed with couples and groups of friends chatting loudly over buckets of chicken wings, while on weekends, college kids make a beeline for the basement to down a few burgers and pints before sweating to a Top 40 DJ.
Diverse vibes, great cocktails, and a handcrafted menu make The Fifty/50 a sure bet for sports lovers, dance fiends, and diners alike – whether they’re in the mood for intricate cocktails and cozy nooks or forty-ounce beers and ball games.
Wicker Park college kids, sports fans, and young families, 20s to 30s.
