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.

Antique Taco is a homey spot for any casual meal in Wicker Park. Definitely eat tacos and maybe even buy yourself some antique furniture.
Ruxbin may not get as much press as it used to, but it’s still excellent. A must hit for a quiet meal.
