Consistently one of our go-to spots in Wicker Park when we’re looking to hang over cocktails, possibly some food, and aren’t worried about watching sports on TV. Bangers & Lace is cool, but not so cool that you’d ever feel out of place. And we’re all about striking that happy medium between bro bar and being judged.
