Included In

Nisei opened in 1951 and is Wrigleyville’s oldest tavern. And this dive bar holdout in a neighborhood that's saturated with sports bars has no signs of slowing down—you can often find longtime regulars grabbing their usual seat at the bar or first-timers playing pool. This spot only has booze and beer nuts, but they’re BYOF, so feel free to bring in food from nearby places like Cozy Noodles.
