Looking for a bar that stays open well past midnight or 1 am? Trace has been Wrigleyville’s late-night go-to since 2001. Conveniently located just two storefronts down from Full Shilling and within walking distance of Chicago’s top entertainment spots, we’re here to keep your night going long after other bars have closed. On weekdays and Sundays, we’re open until 4 am, and on Saturdays, we push it even further until 5 am.

 

What sets us apart? We’ve defied the typical ‘sports bar’ stereotype by offering more than just sports and beer. Trace is also a rock and roll bar and lounge that has thrived for over 20 years. Join us and experience the vibrant nightlife that makes Trace a Wrigleyville institution.

I frequent several bars around Wrigleyville when I come in town to see the Cubs, and Trace is becoming my go to bar. The service is #1 and I can actually get a drink as soon as I walk in the joint. It's my kind of atmosphere!

Super fun place. Late night bar open until 4 every night with great bartenders and fun but firm security. On the weekends the manager is always at the front of the bar making sure everyone is safe and having fun. The Nintendo Switch on the big screen is an awesome addition on top of the Rock music playing whenever you come in. Highly recommend.

Mimi was such a pleasure to have as a bartender. Sweet and helpful. Would definitely come by again to hang out with her and play some Smash Bros on one of their TVs! The place has made a nice well sought change in the neighborhood after changing GMs.

Always a great time at Trace! Friendly staff, great drinks and specials. Open till 4am on Friday and 5am Saturdays. They do industry Only from 2am til close on the weekends so it's a great place to meet up with fellow bartenders servers and fellow industry peeps. They play great rock/punk/hair bands too! Love this place!

They play rock music! The drinks are $14 a piece and depending on the bartender it could be cheaper. Different bartender charge different prices.
