Where to Live
If you want to live in the thick of the action, you may have trouble finding a home in the largely commercial area around the stadium. However, the highly coveted and luxurious condos in this prime location do occasionally become available. You’ll find that row homes and duplexes abound on Sheffield, Addison, and the many side streets that branch out from the main drag. Despite the commotion along Clark Street, there are many peaceful pockets in the neighborhood where you can find a quiet home.
Where to Eat
Clark Street is the heart of Wrigleyville, and on it you’ll find most of the neighborhood’s culinary draws. With so many visitors in the neighborhood for the ballpark, you’ll find lots of casual fare — grilled food, pizza, and tasty appetizers as well as places tailored to the late-night crowds and their cravings. Of course, every neighborhood has its hidden gems. One of Wrigleyville’s is Tango Sur, a Latin American steakhouse serving Argentinean delicacies by candlelight.
What You'll See
Wrigleyville draws a regular stream of tourists who make the trek to see Wrigley Field every year. They’ll gather at the corner of Clark and Addison, where the stadium’s famous marquee shines in bright red. On game days, people in Cubs jerseys and tees flood from the Addison Red Line station and fill the bars around the stadium, too. During the offseason, you’ll see a younger crowd shuttling from bar to bar into the wee hours.
Friday Night Fun
It’s always a party in Wrigleyville, even on the bitterest of cold Chicago nights. Any Friday will see lines out of the doors of the bars and clubs that line Clark Street. While many of these places bump loud music and serve beers and well drinks to packed crowds, you can find more intimate hideouts with less people and more ambience. There are also several spots to sneak into for live music, a round of darts, or a game of pool. When you’d like to skip the bars altogether, the Music Box Theatre on Wrigleyville’s western edge regularly shows a selection of foreign, independent, and classic films that you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
The Perfect Sunday
After a Saturday night on the town, you’ll probably want to kick off your Sunday with brunch somewhere along Clark Street, where the bars are very much in tune with their customers’ Sunday morning needs. An omelet and a hair-of-the-dog beverage will have you feeling in tip-top shape again so that you can head to Wrigley Field and cheer on the Cubs from the stands of this historic, well-loved ballpark. Hopefully a local Chicago celebrity like Vince Vaughn will be on hand to sing the stadium’s favorite tune, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.”
