Local musician Bob Dain brought music to the South Side with the opening of this specialty guitar shop. On any given day, you can find a rotating mix of hundreds of new and pre-owned rare amplifiers, effects and guitars—including brands like Supro, Harmony, Kay, and Airline, made right here in Chicago. The store offers a wide variety of price points, as well as repairs and lessons.
The Magnificent Mile, Bucktown, Lincoln Park—these are the neighborhoods you go to when you've got cash to burn, but Chicagoans don't typically venture to the South Side for a day of shopping. Although Bridgeport might be off the beaten path, don't write it off just yet. While it's not Michigan Avenue (we like it that way) and will always be known as the land of the White Sox, this neighborhood boasts a small, eclectic shopping scene that is definitely worth the trip.
