Nightlife in Humboldt Park
There's a collection of late-night spots on W. Chicago Ave between Damen and California that locals like to frequent. Most bars and late-night spots in Humboldt Park are decidedly casual -- expect an evening of good tunes, affordable food, and libations if you go bar hopping.
History in Humboldt Park
Jimmy's Red Hots has been at the corner of Grand and Pulaski Streets, 4000 West Grand Avenue, serving those who live in Humboldt Park apartments and beyond since 1954. The hot dogs are renowned. The decor is not. But let’s be honest, the only thing that matters is a clean kitchen and a friendly staff. There's no seating -- just a narrow passage allowing a few customers to stand and gaze out the window while they eat.
