Home to the Chicago Cubs (& yours truly), Wrigleyville is an action packed neighborhood.
Named after the friendly confines of Wrigley Field (the oldest ballpark in the National League), the neighborhood has not only transformed into a mecca for baseball fans but is also a hotspot for dining & nightlife.
New developments have brought upscale chef-driven restaurants & boutique hotels like Hotel Zachary to accompany the fan favorite sports & dive bars along Clark Street.
The new Gallagher Way – Wrigleyville’s town square – offers residents and visitors alike a gathering place to enjoy farmers markets, morning workouts, outdoor movies, ice-skating and more on days when the Cubs aren’t playing at home.
The CTA’s Red Line and numerous bus routes run through the area, making it easily accessible by public transit.
A MUST DO IN WRIGLEYVILLE
One of my absolute favorite things to do (& a weekly routine) is to grab a coffee & walk around a sleepy Wrigley Field first thing in the morning. Walking amongst this grand stadium, the L to the east, and the contrasts of ivy-filled vintage architecture & sleek new developments is almost magical. And if I’m craving something sweet, I’ll stop by a Chicago favorite, Do-Rite Donuts, for one of their vanilla bean glazed donuts…definitely worth the extra calories.
Wrigleyville offers a variety of housing styles and prices. Featuring a little bit of everything, options include vintage walk ups, new construction flats & luxury apartments, condominiums, lofts & courtyard buildings. You’ll also find single-family homes sprinkled into the tree-lined streets.
