Shopping on Southport Avenue

Check out some unique Chicago boutiques on Southport Avenue. Go for a leisurely stroll with friends, taking the time to check out every window display and boutique.

Cheesies Pub & Grub (Restaurant, Lakeview)

Cheesies is, simply put, drunk-late-night-food heaven. Also works well for hangovers.

Sports Corner (Bar, Wrigleyville)

You really can’t beat a place with a roof deck in the summer, affording you views of the surrounding neighborhood most likely swarming with inebriated Cubs fans.

The Metro (Music Venue, Wrigleyville)

The Metro (Music Venue, Wrigleyville)

Rockit Bar & Grill combines an upscale River North feel with great food and an atmosphere perfect for cocktailing.

Julius Meinl (Cafe, Lakeview/North Center)

This cafe & restaurant is a gem of a spot in a city scattered with Starbucks. If you’re the type who enjoys slowly sipping a great cup of tea or a cappuccino while reading the paper uninterrupted, this is the place for you.

Tango Sur (Restaurant, BYOB, Lakeview)

We at UPchicago are fanatics for anything Argentine, including the country’s oh-so-fabulous cuisine. So, when we decided to check out Tango Sur to celebrate a birthday the other night, we had high expectations to say the least.

Twist Tapas Cafe (Restaurant, Lakeview/Wrigleyville)

I am in love. Head over heels, obsessively, passionately, helplessly, hopelessly in love…with a quaint little tapas restaurant called Twist.

From the signature red sign at Clark and Addison to the manually operated scoreboard, the Friendly Confines house some of the most recognizable sights in all of baseball.
