Full of eclectic art, famous music joints, live theatre, and dining, Wicker Park is the epitome of the Chicago neighborhood experience. The entire home is yours to enjoy for your next weekend getaway with friends, business trip, special occasion, or "just because" visit to the city!

The Neighborhood
A not-so-hidden gem just outside of the downtown area, Wicker Park is a neighborhood famous for live music, nightlife, countless art galleries (check out the Flat Iron Arts Building!), and unique shopping experiences.

If you're a fan of craft cocktails or a coffee connoisseur, this is definitely the place to be. For an unforgettable speak-easy experience, check out The Violet Hour, or hang out at the renowned brewery, Piece. You'll never be bored with the Emporium Arcade Bar just down the street, or hop over to The Den for several choices of live theatre happening all weekend long.

Enjoy alfresco dining at one of the most unique taco joints in the city, Big Star (with people watching galore) or take a walk along the elevated green space which use to be a train line, the 606.

There's so much to explore in this neighborhood–we hope you'll come and see for yourself!

This neighborhood has one of the highest walking-scores in the city. Tons to do and see right outside the door and stretching several city blocks in both directions.

If you do choose to have a car, there is paid street parking during the day and free between the hours of 10p-7a. We suggest downloading the app SpotHero to find discounted spots in the area.
