Zanies Chicago

1548 N Wells St Chicago

Lincoln Park Chamber
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.

For stand-up from local and national comedians, head to the intimate, original Zanies location on Wells Street. An Old Town fixture since 1978, Zanies holds audiences of just 100 people, and, as it turns out, everything’s funnier in close quarters. Zanies is open every night of the week and features nationally-known names and some of the funniest comedians from Chicago’s thriving stand-up scene.

After the show, head to The Benchmark, just next door on Wells Street. This bar and restaurant boasts plentiful drinks and TVs, creative updates on bar classics, and a truly one-of-a-kind experience: a retractable roof, which turns the second floor into a convertible beer garden during the warmer months.
