The Den Theatre

In just the span of a few years, this Wicker Park space has become a vital three-story hub both for its own productions, resident companies including Irish Theatre of Chicago, Haven Theatre and the New Colony and for rising young troupes like Jackalope, Akvavit Theatre and First Floor Theater. At any given moment the Den may be hosting six different productions. It's also one of the few theaters where you might really want to stick around after the show; on one recent visit, we stepped out post-curtain to find a jazz singer and pianist entertaining a crowd in the cozy, well-equipped lobby bar.

Stopped by the Den to see the Agency's Chagrin Falls (incredible show) and had the best experience.  The staff was so friendly and helpful, and even though I didn't know where I was going or what I was doing, the stress was quickly dissipated and I was able to enjoy the entire experience.  Can't wait to go back and see other shows there.


It's a bar, a theater, a fun place to have meetings or a cup of coffee. Rehearsal space or art openings are always happening get and they are constantly growing. Love their force and presence in the community.


Quirky space filled with all the fun plays and performances, take a chance and be rewarded.
