Written By Lincoln Park Chamber

Playing an active role in the success of the Lincoln Park business since 1947, today’s Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce is evolving to reflect the entire neighborhood – from families calling it home to businessmen and women making their livelihood to friends visiting for the day.

At the North and Wells intersection, you’ll find legendary improv and sketch comedy theatre - The Second City.

Catch a bite and a drink before or after the show at 1959, a gastropub located inside Piper’s Alley, the shopping and dining destination that also houses Second City’s multiple theaters and training center.

Named after the year Second City was founded, 1959 features upgraded bar food, local beers, wine and mixologist-friendly cocktails in a high-end retro-throwback setting, with photos of famous alumni lining the walls.
