Chicago - Wicker Park, Bucktown & Ukranian Village

For a taste of trendy young Chicago, wander up Milwaukee Ave near Damen Ave in Wicker Park on a Friday night. You’ll pass booming bars, packed restaurants and stages hosting indie rock, and shushed underground author readings.

trawl for treasures – an old Devo record, a vintage pillbox hat, steel-toed boots, a mustache disguise kit – in the shops along the half-mile stretch of Milwaukee Ave between Damen and Ashland Aves

hear an alt-country band, watch a local politics talk show, or sing along with a Meatloaf tribute band in Hideout, one of Chicago’s coolest venues

squeeze into the teeny Matchbox for a gimlet, sidecar or other retro cocktail

Coverage includes: Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment and Shopping.
