Bars in Wicker Park / Bucktown Overview

Danny's - Bar | Live Music Venue | Restaurant in Wicker Park / Bucktown, Chicago

Wicker Park / Bucktown has everything! Music venues, sports bars, swanky cocktail lounges, and brewpubs. For an all-night bar crawl experience, featuring food, drink, and entertainment, the Wicker Park / Bucktown bar scene has it all.

Music-lovers should not miss a show at Subterranean, where the black-walled interior provides for a great intimate space for acoustic shows as well as plenty of dancing room for more energetic ones. Or there’s The Hideout, which often features live music and DJs, and despite its popularity still feels like “a secret” given its odd location down a dark alley.

Those interested in beer should certainly check out the Map Room. Arguably Chicago’s best beer bar, the laid-back spot offers dozens of rotating taps and hundreds of bottles featuring beers from all around the world. Since the Map Room doesn’t serve food, the next best spot is Piece, which is a brewery/pizza joint serving award-winning microbrews and fantastic grub.

Anyone looking to class-it-up should check out the Violet Hour for cocktails. This dimly-lit speakeasy offers house-made concoctions like none other. The line, however, can be up to three hours long, however, so it’s probably wise to head across the street to Big Star for some margaritas and tacos during the wait.
