“Wrigleyville will get its own larger version of what may be Chicago’s most-popular bar and eatery this spring. Big Star Wrigleyville — across the street from Wrigley Field in the game-changing Hotel Zachary at 3640 N. Clark Street — will give Cubs fans, locals, tourists, and hotel guests two floors and a large patio full of tacos, whiskey, beer, honky tonk and more that continuously packs One Off Hospitality Group’s original Wicker Park icon. The opening is slated for early April, in time for the Cubs’ home opener, according to a news release.
At two floors and 383 seats, the Wrigley space is much larger than the original. And despite it being new construction, ownership is implementing many of the features the Wicker Park space is known for, including the light-up “tacos” sign, a similar honky-tonk playlist, and most notably a large outdoor space with seating for 87 people and views of the ballpark.
The food and drink will also be similar to the original, so expect tacos, queso fundido, guacamole, margaritas, cheap and craft beer, and a large bourbon selection. It will also have a take-out window, a popular feature at the Wicker Park location.
Besides the size, there are a few differences in the Wrigley spot. Most notable of these is a space for live music, as the release states that the location will “double as a performance venue.” The second floor, another notable difference, will be available for private events.”
