  • Lincoln Park Stadium Bar and Grill
    We are delighted, thrilled, and entranced! Three local residents and friends have teamed up to bring the thirsty, hungry hordes (all of US!) a new and lovely place to enjoy upscale bar food and delectable libations. Affable and clever Florian Miranzadeh partnered with longtime friend Sean Tehrani, owner of the ever-lovely Basil Leaf Cafe on Clark Street, to dream up the concept, then brought in Justin Roof, talented and classically-trained chef, to manage the kitchen and bar. The fresh, fabulous result? LP Stadium! Lincoln Park Stadium Bar & Grill, cheerfully dubbed simply LP Stadium! The name hints at what you'll glimpse inside: wide screen televisions throughout so patrons can view sports in an almost panoramic fashion. But don't worry, fellow sports fans, you won't find the typical rowdy barely-old-enough-to-drink backwards-baseball-cap-toting fraternity-letter-clad beer-spewing crowd here who's mutinous roars drown out conversation; rather, it's a more sophisticated clientele. Picture a more epicurean patron who enjoys Gastro-Pub fare; someone who appreciates food elevated to the likes of house-made tomato basil soup, freshly-prepared fish tacos, succulent and juicy short ribs on cheesy grits, and dare we say almost elegant yet hearty salads (roasted salmon and roasted artichoke, anyone?). Naturally, you'll also find old-school favorites like generously-portioned French fries, piping hot and freshly prepared, or classic standards like chicken wings and meat-lovers' pizzas loaded with carnivores' favorite toppings. Libations? Well, you'll find plenty of brews, of course, including the popular monthly Mystery Beer, on tap for $3. (Think YOU can recognize it?) You'll also find a surprisingly deep selection of wines and craft cocktails that comprise potent concoction perfection. Sure, order your favorite whiskey, neat, or branch out and have the friendly bartenders shake up that richly complex, utterly indulgent chocolate martini you've been craving. The ambiance? It's everything you'd want an upscale sports bar to be, so in addition to all those television screens, you'll find a Game Time & Video Gamer's Den covered with leather sofa seating for maximum comfort. The staff at LP Stadium likes to keep things fresh, so there are plenty of events and gatherings afoot. Examples? A Bourbon-tasting is in the works for you connoisseurs, and you'll find something new and exciting every weekend, whether it's a bowling tournament or a Polar Plunge party.

  • Roscoe's
    For every color in Roscoe’s Tavern & Café rainbow-striped logo, there’s a reason to visit the multi-faceted bar. During warmer months, a quaint sidewalk café sits outside the entryway. The interior is spacious enough to accommodate pool tables, a dance floor, live-band karaoke, and a regular schedule of drag shows and other events. Of course, the real draw is the bar’s well program—more accurately called a “drink well” program, as it promises higher-quality well vodka, whiskey, rum, gin, and tequila. It’s helped Roscoe’s earn a spot on Out magazine’s list of “The 50 Greatest Gay Bars in the World.” With 25-year-old roots in Boystown—the wooden Indian in the doorway is a neighborhood mainstay—the staff at Roscoe’s has a vested interest in helping the surrounding community to thrive. They work with local businesses and charities, including Dance for Life Chicago, a performance-based non-profit that boosts awareness and raises funds for HIV and AIDS care, education, and prevention. The staff also helps patrons register to vote and join neighborhood associations so that they can make their voices heard without having to train a flock of really loud parrots. Groupon Celebrates Pride Month Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives. At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage. This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.

  • Schubas Tavern
    Over the course of its history, the brick tied house at the corner of Belmont and Southport has hosted tenants that helped shape Chicago’s personality. Originally built as a tap room by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company in 1903, the homey corner bar would later transform into Schubas Tavern, one of t he North Side’s preeminent music clubs. Nestled right next door, the Harmony Grill flaunts both its history and proximity to musical derring-do. As diners gather around tables and booths lit by intimate glass-petal hanging lamps, stained glass windows and ornate molding compete for eyes’ attention with the murals, paintings, and photographs of musicians that cover the walls. In the kitchen, chefs preside over design menus brimming with contemporary, regional American cuisine featuring ingredients sourced from local and regional producers. Their tactics reflect this obsession with freshness; they make all soups, sauces, breads, and desserts in-house daily, ensuring that ingredients remain unspoiled and naïve enough to go into the pot willingly. All of this attention to culinary detail pays off at lunch and dinner, of course. Then, chefs accent home-style mac 'n' cheese with combinations of more than 30 toppings, and build beef or veggie burgers, traditional Cuban sandwiches, and shrimp po' boys. They also specialize in brunch, crafting sweet seasonal pancakes, Mexican-inspired egg dishes, and French toast from scratch each weekend. Barkeeps also get a chance to shine, pouring a dozen draft beers—including imports as well as local brews—and local rye whiskeys and vodka.

  • Barn & Company
    Gary Wiviott has turned his love barbecue into a multifaceted career: he's a pitmaster, author, and all-around proponent of getting your hands barbecue-saucey. The author of Low & Slow: Master the Art of Barbecue in 5 Easy Lessons runs the barbecue side of Barn & Company—a modern take on the ol' barbecue shack—drawing on the messy traditions of Texas, Memphis, and Kansas City. The pitmaster sizzles up half-pound plates of pulled pork and beef brisket, slabs of baby back ribs, and smoky Texas sausage links, which cowboys once used to tether their horses. The meat—from pulled pork to the hearty burgers—goes down peacefully with sips bourbon and rye cocktails. While they eat, patrons feast their eyes on the eatery's plasma screens and a 200-inch plasma video wall. Explore Lincoln Park Groupon has partnered with the Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce to curate a deal collection that embodies the spirit of this iconic Chicago neighborhood.
