A buddy of mine had an extra ticket to a play that was being performed in Wicker Park, and due to my love for theater and inability to deny a cash free evening I could NOT say no. We ended up finding a hidden gem on Milwaukee Ave which further convinced me that I have not even seen a quarter of what Chicago has to offer.
Even if you don’t enjoy plays, just go to The Den Theater to hang in the lobby. Walking into The Den feels like you’re walking into a hip Victorian lady’s living room. Mismatched leather couches are scattered throughout the lobby accompanied by what seems to be floating vintage frames and art pieces along one wall. The room is lined with old-style drapes with the recent add on of a small bar and café. It really is a beautiful and homey environment.
