After introducing North Center to their Paris-style cocktail lounge three years ago, the owners of Victor Bar have opened a second bar. Love Street opened earlier this week in Lincoln Park on a quiet tree-lined street. The Fehr brothers hope to stand out in an area more known for its college and sports bars near DePaul University’s main campus.
Victor Bar was a sleeper hit when it debuted in 2016, a bar that earned a reputation as a relaxed neighborhood spot for dates and catching up with friends. Cocktails are central to Love Street’s atmosphere with a menu that mixes classics and new drinks. It serves both traditional Old Fashioneds and the trendier mezcal version. There’s more than 20 signature drinks on the menu. Beer drinkers will have a selection of local breweries including Maplewood, Cruz Blanca, and Begyle. There’s also wine by the glass or bottle. There’s no food.
The name comes from a Doors song, and the bar’s logo brings a little bit of the band’s psychedelic energy. Other than that, the owners made it a point not to leave any band Easter Eggs in the decor. Take a look at the drink list and the space below. Love Street is now open.
Love Street, 1325 W. Wrightwood, open 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. nightly.
