For location, Wrigleyville hits it out of the park. This may be because this area is named and famed for having the Chicago Cubs play baseball at historic Wrigley Field. Wrigleyville is the town that gum and gumption built and although it is one of the smallest neighborhoods within Chicago, it is big on culture and diversity, colorful history (including Cubs curses), and fun places to bar hop and shop around. And don’t forget its rich history as home to many Germans and Scandinavians who fled here after the great Chicago Fire.
This town really and literally gets in the swing of things during baseball season. On game days or nights, the streets team with fans and other folks having a great time. It starts with fun and games, but with its proximity to the Loop, tree-lined streets and a world of sites and activities to do, Wrigleyville is a serious favorite and highly sought-after neighborhood in which to live.
Foodwise There are many places in Wrigleyville to feast upon. For those with tastes beyond hot dogs, pretzels and beer, there are a number of delicious alternatives. Mike’s Favorites include: Uncommon Ground on Grace Street for fabulous salads and sweet potato fries that are to live for and Rockit Bar and Grill for burgers. There’s also the Raw Bar and Grill on Clark Street. And if you know Sushi like we know Sushi, you’ll applaud Matsuya on N. Clark.
