“207-acre park with picturesque pond and boathouse. For some water adventures: rent peddle swans or canoes in the summer. To keep the adventure on a wheels: you can rent different bikes to see the park from a different view. I tend to visit the park early. During the weekend there are a ton a baseball, soccer games and family gatherings. Be sure to stay safe and stay in well lit areas. ”

“Brendan Sodikoff took over the ’30s-era cocktail bar in 2014 , and it’s still wonderfully low-key with live music, a jukebox and glowing red lights—but now with better drinks. Try the elegant gin and raspberry Clover Club. The venue's robust live music schedule features jazz and country acts, with covers that are usually between $5-$10, depending on the show.”

“What would happen if you took the elements that have made a certain Wicker Park bar so oppressively popular—creative tacos, cheap beer, good music—and moved them a mile west? Bullhead Cantina tries to answer that question, offering a long list of tacos (including sweet potato and portobello options for vegetarians) as well as some Mexican-inspired burgers. Best of all, a taco, a PBR tallboy and a shot is always just $7.”

“This inconspicuous bar is equal parts after-work dive and Antiques Roadshow. Amid dusty knickknacks and bric-a-brac, the family who runs the place will pour you a stiff drink and then try to sell you a Civil War–era revolver, a set of buffalo-themed shot glasses or anything else lying around—anything except for the patriarch’s wall-mounted marlin and the Hamm’s sign hanging out front.”

Night Club
“If you want to watch any Chicago team (Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs, etc.) while enjoying a cold beverage and a plate of barbecue, you've come to the right place. Boulevard Sports Lounge lets you order brisket, rib tips and pulled pork by the pound while you take in the game on an array of screens covering the walls of this Humboldt Park bar. Even if you don't feel like cheering on the home team, you'll appreciate the nightly food and drink specials.”
