Division Street Bar & Grill (Bar, Humboldt Park)
Location: 2525 W. Division St.
Phone: (773) 252-2233
Just five blocks west of the bustling Damen & Division intersection, this discreet bar is tucked far enough away from the Wicker Park scene to escape the crowds, but close enough to join them after a few drinks.
Speckled with small tables and a few booths throughout, Division Street Bar & Grill maintains a relaxed atmosphere while supplying cheap beer and food specials. In the summer they open the wall of windows facing the street, so grab a table near the front and kick back with a cold one and enjoy the view. Before you make the trek to Humboldt, be sure to check out their website—they have some killer daily specials (especially those 2for 2’sday mini-burgers). With a respectable bar menu and a food menu full of fried goodness, Division Street Bar & Grill is a great stop to satisfy those beer munchies or kick it with friends and split an appetizer (or three).
With their relaxed atmosphere, friendly servers, a nice breeze streaming through the open windows, music provided almost solely by The Shins, and dirt cheap dining and drinks, Division Street Bar & Grill provided us with a place to sit back with a cold beer (or whiskey) and watch the sun set before heading to our next location.
