Jack’s Bar & Grill and 404 Wine Bar (Restaurant, American, Lincoln Park)
Location: 2856 N. Southport
Jack’s Bar and Grill is like many other neighborhood pubs located in Lincoln Park, but with a slight twist. Connected to this quaint bar featuring intimate booths and an antiquated tin ceiling is the 404 Wine Bar, a more modern but equally cozy spot where patrons can choose from 100 wines by the glass and over 120 by the bottle. The relaxed atmosphere and lack of blaring music make this an ideal location to meet friends for dinner, drinks, or even a game of Monopoly, as there are several board games stacked in one of the corner booths. On any given Saturday night Jack’s and 404 are packed with twenty to thirty somethings, though during daytime hours it caters to a more diverse crowd, including Sunday brunchers. Reservations are recommended in the evenings since tables fill up quickly, and there is limited space for people to mingle around the bar. Whether you are hosting a private party in the wine bar, enjoying the beer garden on a warm summer evening, or cozying up to the old wooden bar to watch a sporting event on the flat screen, Jack’s and 404 offer a little something for everyone. And be sure to sample some of the delicious complimentary popcorn from the popcorn machine!
