Party Earth Vines on Clark Review

The Scene

Vines on Clark in Chicago's Wrigleyville offers guests lots of TVs, great daily specials, & a big seasonal beer garden. Bat on over to Chicago with Party Earth.

With lots of glowing flat-screens beckoning to Cubs fans, daily specials luring the budget-minded, and a big seasonal beer garden perfect for open air drinking, Vines on Clark fits right into the Wrigleyville bar scene without being (entirely) about baseball.

A long wooden bar with a mirrored back lines the right side of the front room, where casual area residents and college kids eye the TVs and take on stellar deals like half-off all food on Mondays and $1 Millers on Wednesdays.

Unless the Cubs are in town, rows of red leather bar tables usually offer plenty of room for whoever drops by, though home games promise hundreds of rowdy fans crowding in with pennants and mugs in hand and colors blazing.

Opposite the bar, a cozy brick room with a crackling fireplace offers less sports-minded couples and families a more intimate dining setting, while summer months see the majority of patrons making a beeline for the expansive patio and rooftop deck, where they dine on upscale bar fare like goat cheese salads and blackened steak as they watch the madness of Wrigleyville unfold below.

Whether it’s hosting a roaring, blue-painted throng on game days or a docile lunch crowd enjoying the specials, Vines on Clark is the kind of joint where Wrigleyville jocks and wanderers just passing through will both find reasons to return.

Tip from Lucas:

You definitely want to cash in on Vines' awesome daily specials – just don’t expect them on game days or during other big Wrigley Field events and holidays, because they aren’t offered on those days.

  • Crowd

    Painted Cubs fans dominate during home games (much like in all of Wrigleyville), otherwise a good mix of budget-minded college kids, sports enthusiasts, blue-collar Joes, families, and festive friends who want to kill a few pints outdoors, 20s to late 40s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Around a dozen flat-screens tuned to sports, plus two projectors brought out for major games. Ambient pop and classic rock if a game isn’t on. Trivia night on Thursdays.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Menu of classier-than-average pub grub featuring toasted ravioli, goat cheese salads, burgers, turkey panini, pulled chicken, and specialty or create-your-own pizzas. ATM on site. Reservations accepted. Daily food and drink specials, game days excluded.

  • Prices

    Appetizers $7–$10, soups $4–$5, salads $6–$12, entrées and pastas $12–$14, sandwiches and wraps $9–$10, pizzas $7–$12.

    Beer $4–$6/glass or $10–$15/pitcher (Thursdays only), wine $7–$8, cocktails $5–$7, shots $5–$7.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: sports jerseys, t-shirts, button-downs, jeans, blouses, tank tops.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    Any home game day to join the madness, Mondays for half-off all food and wine, or sunny summer afternoons for day drinking in the beer garden.

  • Close By

    Right next door is The Cubby Bear (1059 West Addison Street), a massive sports bar and music venue owned by the same folks.

Goat Cheese And Grape
Molly G. Apr 2, 2013
I went for lunch a few weeks ago to Vines and loved my experience. The server I had was making my day better. He was funny welcoming and at my beck and call. I got the Goat Cheese and Grape Salad it had mixed baby greens with baked red grapes and walnuts tossed in raspberry vinaigrette, topped with baked goat cheese. You can ad chicken for a couple extra dollars. I am so excited for the summer time since the patio is huge and amazing. The have great specials every day and will be a great place for Cubs season!
Hidden gem in plain sight
Erin R. Mar 30, 2013
Located just steps away from Wrigley Field, Vines on Clark is the perfect pre or post game spot -- or any time in between. In a neighborhood filled with unique places to grab a drink, Vines stands out as an excellent choice for dining as well. Not feeling like a ballpark hot dog? Want something a little more sophisticated than the McDonald's across the street? Vines is for you. Their Italian Beef Sandwich is out of this world. Pair that with a reasonably priced beer or cocktail (seriously, they have great prices for being in the heart of Wrigleyville) and you've got yourself a homerun. Vines' upscale facade makes it a gem that is hidden in plain sight. Don't let it's exterior deter you from trying out this spot -- it only looks expensive.
Good Restaurant
Katya G. Feb 19, 2013
The service at Vines on Clark might not always be speedy, but it is still a decent restaurant. The food and drink specials are phenomenal when the Cubs aren't in town. If you go on a Monday, the entire menu is half off! My favorite thing to eat at this restaurant has to be the buffalo chicken nachos.
