The Apartment (Bar, Lincoln Park)

Location: 2251 N. Lincoln Ave.
Phone: (773) 348-5100
Open Thursday-Saturday

This late-night, weekend-only bar has a great concept, even if the place itself isn’t exactly the coolest spot in town anymore. The bar/lounge, located above Lion Head Pub, is set-up exactly like its namesake, a real apartment. There is a “bedroom” and “kitchen” and “living room,” each of which you can hang out in with friends if you aren’t hitting up the dance floor. The Apartment usually houses transplants from downstairs (Lion’s Head) or another Lincoln Ave. haunt looking for a place to dance, as the apartment features different DJs every night. The dance floor is usually crowded with sweaty drunk twenty-somethings grinding to the latest pop music.

Drinks are a little pricier than downstairs or the other Lincoln Ave. bars sporting $1 bottle nights, but it’s one of the only places with a nightclub feel in Lincoln Park. The place, and area, is usually college age kids (this stretch of Lincoln Ave. is a Depaul kid’s heaven) and probably won’t extend past the age of 25.

About Tessa McLean

There is just something about that feeling when you have been away — maybe for a weekend, a month, 6 months — and you’re driving into Chicago and that first glimpse of the city skyline appears. It just always makes me smile.
