Wrigleyville Neighborhood History
Was there a Wrigleyville before the ball park? Objectively, no, of course not. Can't have a neighborhood named for a landmark without said landmark, right? What there was was a working-class neighborhood of European immigrants. But the park brought in new residents, and as time has gone on, the Wrigleyville neighborhood has developed into two distinct characters.
One one side is the tree-lined residential neighborhood. While the working class immigrants may be gone, their home styles remain. Like much of the north side of Chicago, these are stone, two to three levels, and often subdivided. The other face of the neighborhood is the bar and ballpark scene. This side thrives from April to September (most years – October ball is a rarity), and is quieter (if not quiet) the rest of the year.
Events, Activities, Lifestyle, and Dining Options In Wrigleyville
Did we mention some baseball? I thought so. Wrigleyville is first and foremost known as the home of the Chicago Cubs. One of the oldest teams in baseball, they play at the second-oldest park in the league, historic Wrigley Field, built in 1914. Known for superstitious fans, losing seasons, and having a huge following, the Cubs have been a part of the neighborhood since it began.
There is more to do than just baseball. Wrigleyville is known for having a vibrant bar scene, with baseball-themed establishments like the Cubby Bear, Murphy’s Bleachers, and The Dugout Sports Bar & Grill. The baseball theme is common in Wrigleyville, and during the season these are packed to the rafters with fans in for the game. On the off-season, however, these revert to purely neighborhood bars, and the locals come out to enjoy the relative quiet.
Restaurants are available in quantity too. Not all are baseball themed, which is nice. Noted stand-outs include The Irish Oak, featuring a menu drawing equally from Dublin and El Paso, TX; >Bernie’s Chicago, which has been going since 1954; and Azteca De Oro Mexican Grill.
Wrigleyville Neighborhood Culture, Shopping, and Lifestyle
The culture here is young, hip, and affluent. The shopping is sometimes the same, but is also dominated by tie-ins to the ballpark. Two of the best known fan shops are Wrigleyville Sports and, of course, the official Cubs Store. Beyond the baseball, however, Wrigleyville is rather barren. A small neighborhood, there is not much beyond shops serving the fans. Nearby neighborhoods have more to offer, but within the confines of Wrigleyville, business focuses on the Cubs.
