Consistently one of our go-to spots in Wicker Park when we’re looking to hang over cocktails, possibly some food, and aren’t worried about watching sports on TV. Bangers & Lace is cool, but not so cool that you’d ever feel out of place. And we’re all about striking that happy medium between bro bar and being judged.

Mahalo is a Hawaiian restaurant that hopped on the poke trend. The island vibes are heavy, but the food isn't great.
Sultan's doesn't look like much, but the West Town shop serves excellent, quick Middle Eastern food, and you can BYOB on their small patio.

Entente serves high-end food at reasonable prices in a cool Lakeview space with A$AP Rocky in the background. Makes no sense, but works great.
Chicken & Farm Shop
Chicken & Farm Shop is one of the casual restaurants in Soho House. It shouldn't come as a surprise that chicken is the main attraction.
