Best Places to Watch NFL Games in Wicker Park

Now that the NFL season is upon us, you may be wondering where in Wicker Park y

The Bedford

The Bedford is a classy cocktail joint right across the street from Holiday Jones. The Bedford describes it’s atmosphere as a “cocktail party experience”. For those that are a little tired of all the great beer in the Wicker Park neighborhood, you can take a break and/or turn it up a notch with liquor at The Bedford. Some of the more popular concoctions include: The Hemingway (rum, lime, grapefruit, marashino liqueur) and Cucumber Cooler (vodka/gin, aperol, lime juice, simple syrup, cucumber). Before it was a bar, the Bedford was a bank, which is why all the walls are covered by safety deposit boxes. Since it’s right across the street, this is a great place for nightcap after a day of traveling around Chicago. Have a cocktail then walk 100 feet to your bed.
