What Its Known For
Hey, batter batter! Wrigleyville is famously known for being home to the Chicago Cubs. Even on non-game days, this area is popping with plenty of restaurants, sports bars, and rooftop patios with ballpark views to try out. Since the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series win, this neighborhood hasn’t stopped partying.
TO DO IN WRIGLEYVILLE
Let’s get the obvious out of the way—you can catch a Cubs game at Wrigley Field (bonus points if you make an infamous “cup snake” in the outfield bleachers). If you’re looking for more than a baseball game, N. Clark St. is loaded with fun themed bars and good eats. Take a swing in the batting cages at Sluggers, tap into your country side at Old Crow, or watch some sports at Murphy’s Bleachers. Wrigleyville is situated near Northalsted (a.k.a. Boystown) and Lakeview, which means you get to enjoy all the offerings of those neighborhoods too–within walking distance!
In the summertime, you can catch your favorite artist hosting a concert at Wrigley Field, along with movie showings on the open field at Gallagher Way. During winter, head to the beloved Christkindlmarket for some authentic German foods and boozy spiced wine—don’t forget to grab your skates and hit the ice rink! Year-round, Southport Corridor has all your shopping needs covered with favorites like Anthropologie and Jewel Osco.

APARTMENTS IN WRIGLEYVILLE
Being farther north from the heart of downtown, Wrigleyville’s pricing is generally more affordable. Tourism is constant in the area, and we recommend taking note of game day crowds when considering this neighborhood. Rental options are mostly units in low-brick buildings and a few ultra-luxe properties with tons of amenities.
