Welcome to Wicker Park

A modern-day twenty-something haven, Wicker Park on Chicago’s northwest side is home to some of the city’s hottest nightlife and cosmopolitan happenings. Just north of the Loop, south of Bucktown, and west of Pulaski Park, Wicker Park scores well for city walk-ability and features a high per capita of locally owned restaurants and bars, coffee shops, food trucks, and farmers’ markets. Arts galleries, movie and theater houses, music venues, and other arts-centered establishments add to Wicker Park’s eclectic and exciting reputation as Chicago’s arts district.

History

Wicker Park’s history extends back to 1837, when it was first incorporated as a district of Chicago. The area experienced an early rise in steel mills, cigar manufacturers, breweries, musical instrument-makers, and other industries before eventually turning to residential development following the Great Chicago Fire. As a result, Wicker Park has long been home to a diverse group of residents. Among its most prominent citizens of yesteryear, the Pritzkers, Uihleins, Saul Bellows, Nelson Algren, and Carl Laemmle of Universal Studios were all proud to call Wicker Park home. Their legacy of prominent Victorian mansions can still be seen along Hoyne Avenue south of North Avenue, otherwise known as Beer Baron Row.

Demographic

From its early Irish roots in the mid-1800s and eventual German, Norwegian, Jewish, and Polish immigrants, all the way up to the area’s more recent Puerto Rican community, Wicker Park has been home to many different cultural and ethnic groups throughout its history. One is most likely to recognize today’s Wicker Park residents by their distinct fashion and eclectic styles. Tattoos and thick-rimmed glasses along with messenger bags and a cup of coffee in hand signal the trendy neighborhood’s current influx of hip artists and young professionals conveniently living near the Loop’s business district. With its lively nightlife, easy public transit, and range of housing options, Wicker Park appeals to up-and-comers looking for the heart of chic Chicago culture.

Popular Landmarks

Wicker Park’s liveliest cultural scene can be found along the intersection of Milwaukee, North, and Damen Avenues. There, venues like The Wormhole Coffee, Filter Cafe, and the Double Door bring the iconic arts scene to area residents. Additionally, gallery spaces and cheap studio space within the district’s Flat Iron building encourage future generations of artists to add their voices to the Wicker Park community.
