Little Victories is from the same people as Spilt Milk, and feels like a 70s rec room, with wood paneling and lots of plants. It’s a great bar for a first date because it’s got the necessities (dart boards, pool table, jukebox) but is nicer than the dive bar you were thinking about going to. Order the extra-battered french fries.

There’s no denying Big Star is an anchor tenant of the Wicker Park dining scene, but that doesn’t mean everyone feels the same way about it.
