Wrigleyville has been undergoing a major transformation, and its highly anticipated centerpiece is finally coming to life. The Park at Wrigley, an expansive indoor and outdoor restaurant and entertainment complex at Clark and Waveland right next to Wrigley Field, will offer plenty of activities to Cubs fans and tourists.
In light of the Cubs’ 2016 World Series win, investment into Wrigleyville has been on the rise, especially on the Clark Street bar strip. The indoor portion of the plaza will feature a bi-level Chicago Cubs merchandise store, a restaurant that’s due to open later this year, a Starbucks, and a trophy room where the Commissioner’s Trophy will be displayed. Outdoor activities at the plaza include a weekly Green City Market hosted by Crate & Barrel, open-air movie nights hosted by Music Box Theatre, and live performances hosted by the Old Town School of Folk Music.
The plaza, developed by Hickory Street Capital, is expected to open a handful of stores to the public in time for the opener game against the Dodgers on April 10, which is also when the ribbon cutting ceremony will take place.
The Park at Wrigley invites you to enjoy every game day at the park, and will hold special events throughout the season. The first event will be a “Craft and Cuisine” food and craft beer festival on May 13 – 14. The first movie in the park will Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on June 14.
