A Luxury Hotel Near Wrigleyville, Chicago

Wrigleyville is a lively little pocket on Chicago's north side that surrounds the iconic Wrigley Field⁠ — the second oldest ballpark in the nation (after Fenway Park) and home to the world champion Chicago Cubs.

When it's not a game day, Wrigleyville's shops and bars exude a quiet, approachable vibe. Come nightfall, a boisterous after-hours crowd heads to Wrigleyville for everything from live music to vintage spirits or a good, old-fashioned Old Style. And if it's a game day, be prepared to get acquainted with hundreds of friendly Cubs fans on the streets and in the neighborhood's dozens of bars.

The best part about Wrigleyville? Even if it isn't peak season for the Cubs, there's still plenty to do for baseball fans and adventurous spirits alike.

Game Tips

As any sports fan knows, enjoying a game day in the Friendly Confines is only half the fun. If you're planning on making your way to a Cubs game, these tips will ensure your day is a home run.


Best Ways to Get Tickets

If you're looking to score day-of tickets, the Cubs' on-site box office, MLB.com or the Gametime app are your best best for cost-effective options. Both are good options for weekday and non-premium games as well.

Of course, tickets can sell out quickly depending on the game, so if you're in dire straights, try hitting up secondary sites like SeatGeek or StubHub. While their prices may be above face value, there are likely to be a variety of seating options.

Where to Sit

If you're looking for a bird's-eye view of the game with zero obstructions, the upper deck between aisles 409 and 431 is an excellent place to watch the game with a clear perspective. Just be careful to note, the view from the seats above Row 16 in the upper deck may be obstructed due to an overhang. In the terrace (lower) level of the field, some seats in row 7 or higher may have obstructed views of the field.


Wrigley Field Bleacher Seating

If you want a true Cubs experience with the rowdier crowds, Wrigley Field offers reduced price seating in the bleachers, which are located on the opposite side of the field from home plate. Keep in mind that this section is not covered by an awning, so you'll be fully exposed to the rain or sunshine.


Wrigley Rooftops

Can't get tickets to the game? Not to worry. Get an awesome vantage point from Wrigley Rooftops next to the stadium.

Where to Hang out in Wrigleyville

Whether or not baseball is on your mind, Wrigleyville provides dozens of iconic restaurants and watering holes that range from rowdy to low-key to kid-friendly.
