Where we've featured it
Chop Shop is a bar, restaurant, butcher shop, and live event space year-round. That’s a handful, but during the summer there’s only one part of Chop Shop you need to worry about: their rooftop. It’s a more secluded and laid-back outdoor space than its partytime neighbor, Big Star, so it’s ideal for a midweek casual hang.
The Deal: $1 Oysters
When: 5-7pm on Wednesdays
Chop Shop is a casual spot in Wicker Park with a bar area, dining room, and an excellent rooftop. Their Wednesday oyster special is ideal because it runs until 7pm, so you don’t have to rush there. Plus, oysters are always better if you can eat them outside.
There’s a lot going on here with a butcher shop, bar, full restaurant, and venue space. And while all may come in handy at one point or another, the bar is worth popping into for drinks and some shareable bites. There’s a great rooftop for the summer months too.
