Welcome to Lake View & Wrigleyville
Lake View is the overarching name of this good-time neighborhood, known for its nonstop lineup of bars, theaters, rock halls and global eateries. Wrigleyville is the pocket that surrounds star attraction Wrigley Field, where big changes are afoot. For years, sticky-floored boozers were the stock in trade. Now cocktail bars, fancy doughnut shops and trendy eateries have joined the game. Foodies and families are thrilled. Those who perceive a loss of local color are not. The rainbow banners of Boystown flutter next door, home to gay bars and dance clubs.
