Not feeling Subterranean’s music for the night? Can’t take the hipper-than-thou crowd at Rainbo? Prefer a place less clubby than Debonair? Well, then head to this low-key sanctuary in the otherwise oft-pretentious Milwaukee-North-Damen intersection. No one’s trying to out-cool anyone here (though late at night, they’re definitely trying to pick each other up), so feel free to strike up a conversation with a stranger over some tasty late-night bar eats, served until the wee hours of the morning.

Estelle's is a great hidden wicker park spot. They've got a ton of local beers and a good cocktail menu as well. Their staff is super friendly, and for being a dive bar their snacks are great!


Estelle's is a chill spot in Wicker Park that also offers up some pretty great people-watching on weekends. Lots of local beers on tap and a decent selection of snacks. 

Went to Estelle's for a drink and a quick bite to eat after a show at the Subterranean. It's a great spot to grab a beer and some decent bar food. Nachos anyone? It's usually pretty chill in the early evening but can quickly get packed after 10 or around the time when shows are letting out from next door.
