Ward Eight

They say the secret to success is location, location, location. Anne Carlson and Cody Modeer, the team behind Ward Eight, may disagree. The out-of-the-way location of this cocktail bar—on the Evanston side of Howard Street, which gives it an identity somewhere between urban and suburban—has done nothing to dampen the enthusiasm people have for it. Simple, focused, understated but stylish, the bar proves that an unconventional location is nothing great execution can’t overcome. 629 W Howard St, Evanston (773-369-4911).
