Where Is It Filmed? A TV Show’s Guide To Filming Locations In The City

The home of the dysfunction Gallagher family on the series Shameless is located at 2119 S Homan Ave. Just be aware – someone LIVES in that house and they’ll come out and crash your party! 

This article has 11 other Chicago locations (Show)

The firehouse from Chicago Fire is obviously a must see. It’s located at 1360 S. Blue Island Avenue in Chicago and is a frequent spot for tourists and fans. You can’t tour the actual set but you can watch from afar and even meet some of the show’s stars!

...a neighborhood sports bar in Bucktown called Lottie’s Pub. They filmed on location at 1924 W. Cortland St. until the early in season 2, when Molly’s was built at Cinespace. Yep, that...

Several scenes have been shot in the hallway at 558 W. De Koven St. You are free to roam around the ground floor inside and check out the glass case full of badges from fallen firefighters. Fun fact – it’s also built on a site where the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was started.

This is actually the UIC Police Headquarters at 943 W. Maxwell St. You can take pics in front of the exterior but don’t expect to be greeted by Platt upon entering! It’s also a few blocks from the firehouse so it’s like killing two birds with one stone! Just be careful walking around at night.

The popular hospital rooftop is located at 1653 W. Congress Pkwy but looking East. Also Rush University Medical Center Rush Tower; 1620 W. Harrison Street.

Chicago Med where all of our favorite doctors work is located at 1675 W. Congress Pkwy aka Rush Medical Center. It’s a little East of S. Paulina Street. Also 1653 W. Congress Pkwy.

The exterior of the building is at 353 N. Clark Street. Always shown is the Clark side of the corner building. It is supposed to represent New York though – fooled weren’t ya?

You know the dangerous recording studio where even Cookie wasn’t safe? That’s at 2444 W. 16th Street!

The Jackson house is located at 1937 S. Spaulding Ave.

Kevin and Veronica’s home is also located on Homan Ave, just a few doors down actually – 113 S Homan Ave.
