Wine Bar

I am looking for a good wine bar in Lincoln Park or Lakeview to host a get together of 25 or so people during a weeknight, any ideas?

  • Webster's Wine Bar would have been a good choice, but they've moved to Logan Square, if that's an acceptable alternative. Coppervine is a restaurant at 1962 N. Halsted, however they focus on pairing of food with specific wines/drinks. Might be a fun spin.

  • I've heard that City Winery hosts private wine tasting events.

Reserved Parking Spot on Belden Needed

We have a new baby and are really not looking forward to street parking all winter long. We live near 428 W Belden and are looking for a parking spot or garage that is available and close to the apartment. If you know of anything, please let me know. Thank you!

    Standard Parking operates a parking garage at the 345 Fullerton Condo Association. This is located on Commonwealth @ Fullerton. Might be a little too far for you but thought I would let you know.

Lincoln Park's little blue house has vanished

Built in 1886, it sat on the corner of Armitage Avenue and Howe Street in Lincoln Park like a Lilliputian in the land of giants, its survival an ongoing mystery in a part of the city that shows little patience for the small or the old.

Looking for a room for three months

Hi I`m Giulia,
I`m here in Chicago for a few months for an internship and I`m looking for a room.
Actually I`m in a far West area but I don`t feel very comfortable. Is there anyone that can help me?

Thank you

  • Yes, if you look under temp leases/ subleases, people have places available for 2-3 month periods. Some specifically for people who are completing an internship.

  • What are the exact dates? Where is your internship? We have a room that we rented to an intern at Alinea a while back.

Still hanging on! Lincoln Park's curious cottage on Armitage yet to be developed

We last wrote about the house at 625 W Armitage last November.  Public notices were posted regarding a variance request by an active local developer. Almost one year later the house still remains.

The area of Armitage and Howe is made up of mostly high-end homes, newer condo buildings and vintage condo conversion buildings.  2041 N Howe (just a half block from 625 W Armitage) sold this summer for $3,832,500.00
