  • Fizz Bar and Grill
    Open until at least 2 a.m. every night of the week, Fizz welcomes revelry-seeking crowds with a list of as many as 100 different beers and a menu of savory finger foods. Ales and lagers from local breweries—including Goose Island, Half Acre, and Revolution—join an assortment of beers from across the country and around the world on a quest to keep glasses full and frothy. In between sips, patrons can sample the kitchen's menu of 10-ounce sirloin burgers, hand-pulled-pork sandwiches, and pizzas with 22 available toppings that come from all five corners of the food pyramid. The bar's 150-seat beer garden stays open year-round, remaining covered and heated during the winter so that guests can laugh in Jack Frost’s stupid face while enjoying the space's couches, televisions, and dartboards. Indoors, the bar keeps groups engaged with team trivia competitions and swing nights throughout the week.

  • The Hypocrites
    Founded in 1997 by inventive Chicago artist Sean Graney, The Hypocrites curates unorthodox theatrical endeavors with inimitable panache and an underlying emotional vulnerability. Praised by the Chicago Sun-Times for its propensity to ?never do things the expected way,? The Hypocrites have applied its unconventional approach to classic texts such as The Threepenny Opera, Frankenstein, and Kafka's The Trial. Throughout the years, these productions have earned the company a trophy case of Joseph Jefferson citations, as well as an After Dark Award and a letter of recommendation from Shakespeare?s great-great-great-great grandfather.

  • Civic Opera Barber Salon
    For nearly 40 years, the Civic Opera Barber Shop has offered straightforward men's grooming services inside the Civic Opera building, with all its gold-leafed art-deco finery. A red, white, and blue barber pole outside the salon beckons potential customers while representing the three colors of human hair. Within, plush burgundy thrones elevate heads to the ideal styling height, giving the veteran barber full sway over every strand as he shaves stubble with straight razors and hot lather, cuts hair into no-nonsense styles, and trims back beards to distinguish man from wolfman.

  • Irish American Heritage Center
    Occupying a building that sprang up at the turn of the 20th century, the Irish American Heritage Center (IAHC) somehow manages to cram Ireland into one of Chicago?s city blocks. Work from Irish artists hangs in the building?s art gallery, books from Irish authors fill its library, Irish plays light up its 658-seat theater, and Irish food and drinks delight the crowd on the main floor at the Fifth Province Pub. The IAHC also has a knowledgeable staff of instructors, who teach classes on everything from Irish dance and music to Irish language and genealogy.

  • The Lauren Wolf Band
    A 15-year veteran of the Chicago theater community, Lauren Wolf returned to the Second City after recording her debut album All My Secrets in LA in 2011. Backed by a talented band—including Josh Groban’s guitarist Ricky Z—the singer and single mother has graced the stage at The House of Blues, Hard Rock Cafe, and Mayne Stage, drawing comparisons to Janis Joplin for her powerful pipes. Lauren soulfully croons lyrics inspired by her personal struggles and unfinished macramé projects set to upbeat rhythms influenced by the music of the '60s, '70s, and '80s.
