Cubs fans have another place to party in Wrigleyville starting today as Happy Camper opens its second location off Clark Street, just south of Wrigley Field. While it’s the second pizzeria to bear the Happy Camper name, it’s the owners’s fourth restaurant. They also own Homeslice in Lincoln Park and Paradise Park in Wicker Park.

There are many TVs inside and three outdoor spaces also have TVs. The front is marked by artificial turf and a 48-inch disco ball. The indoor space has sliding windows to give customers fresh air while maintaining cover from rain. There’s also a back patio on the ground floor near a flight of glittery stairs that lead to the roof deck on the second floor. The second floor includes a bar, an aerial view of the back patio, and even more TVs.

Happy Camper Wrigleyville will serve the same thin-crust pizzas and salads as it does in Old Town. The owners are confident in their food and service, but think what sets them apart is they way they throw a party. There’s a DJ booth in back, and a little space if customers want to create a makeshift dance floor.

Check out the space below. Happy Camper Wrigleyville opens at 4:30 p.m. today.
