Following a pandemic-era closure, the glowing red lights at beloved Humboldt Park haunt California Clipper flickered back to life earlier this year thanks to an acquisition by the hospitality company Orbit Group (Good Measure, Segnatore)—and we’re pleased to report that things are mostly back to usual at the bar, from weekly live music to the same red leather booths flanking the walls. If you’re craving a change of pace, venture to the Clipper’s new back room (which previously housed coffee shop C.C. Ferns) for DJ sets and late-night dancing meant to channel the spirit of Danny’s, the iconic Bucktown spot that shuttered in 2020.
