Chris's Northland Tavern

Bars, Dive bars Wicker Park

This nondescript neighborhood bar, an unpretentious dive where older guys play pool and shoot the breeze while Aerosmith blasts on the jukebox and the always-irate bartender serves cold beers, seems almost out of place in Wicker Park. Some of the regulars are real characters, such as the guy donning a hat covered in foil-wrapped cigars, and they warm up to you once everyone's had a few drinks.
