Hidden entrance, look for a mural on the side of building and the door in the middle of it all. Creative cocktails & small bites define this sophisticated, stylish bar.

Creative cocktails & small bites define this sophisticated, stylish bar. Hidden door on the street, but usually a line of people outside waiting to get in. Totally worth the wait!

Taco Place
“Big Star is a bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, late-night honky-tonk in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park and Wrigleyville neighborhoods. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Chris Miller’s menu, inspired by authentic Mexican street food, is complemented by an extensive house-selected single barrel bourbon program. Housed in a defunct 1940's gas station, the Wicker Park taqueria’s soundtrack of classic country and rock & roll is selected and spun by bar staff. They operate on a first come, first serve basis and don't take reservations. The corner of North Ave. and Damen Ave. (1531 N. Damen Ave.).”
