Let’s play two with two outdoor terraces at the new restaurant and bar that overlooks the ballpark

Chicago has several options for al fresco dining, but none quite like The Brickhouse Tavern. The new restaurant and bar’s views give Cubs fans a glimpse of Wrigley Field inside the triangular-shaped plaza in front of the ballpark. The two-floor spot opened earlier this week and it could be one of Wrigleyville’s hottest tables during the season.

While there’s a modern feel inside, the interiors also respect tradition by housing several pieces of Cubs’ memorabilia from Cy Young Awards, to Gold Gloves, to autographed baseballs. Studio K, the well-known firm that earns countless accolades for its design work—including Girl & the Goat, Maple & Ash, and fellow Four Corners Tavern Group member Federales—has brought its A-game. Fully aware of its proximity to the Friendly Confines, check out the wall patterned with baseball bats on the first floor. A twisting staircase leads to the second floor where a neon Cubbie blue light fixture hangs from the ceiling.

The space boasts four bars and two outdoor terraces. There’s room for 900 people inside and Wrigley Field’s capacity is about 42,000. Pro tip: Do the math and get inside early to grab a seat on gameday. Brickhouse is operated by Four Corners in partnership with Hickory Street Capital, the development firm run by the Cubs’ owners, the Ricketts family.

Check out the photos below.
