Wicker Park

What you need to know

Bohemians and creative-types flock to Chicago’s Wicker Park, located in the heart of West Town. This trendy neighborhood saw exponential growth in the 90’s and early 00’s, cementing itself as one of the city’s coolest towns. Once home to artists like James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins and Matt Skiba of The Alkaline Trio, this spot is practically a hipster haven. But with many of Chicago’s James Beard restaurants, amazing cocktail bars and a great music scene, even the uncool can find something to love about Wicker Park.
