Will Wicker Park's Beachwood Inn be the Next Dive to Go Away?

The beloved bar on the corner of Beach and Wood is for sale.


Is a longtime Wicker Park neighborhood spot set to join the pile of dive bar deaths? Beachwood Inn, the beloved Wicker Park dive on the corners of Beach and Wood off Milwaukee Avenue, is for sale, DNAinfo reports. No deal is finalized but prospective owners reportedly want to keep a bar there.

Two nearby dives are shuttered or are about to—Marie's Riptide Lounge on Armitage and Club Foot on Augusta—but it's too early to speculate on the Beachwood's future until new ownership and their plans are in place. Stay tuned to see the fate of Wicker Park's beloved home of boardgames, plastic pig statues and extremely cheap drinks.
