Located just off of the Damen, Milwaukee and North Ave intersection, in the heart of Wicker Park, the Chop Shop and 1st Ward brings together some of Chicago’s favorite things: encased meats, craft beers, cocktails, and live entertainment. Housed in a 100-year-old former auto body shop, the Chop Shop boasts an authentic salumeria and gourmet butcher shop offering an assortment of quality meats & cheeses from local farms around the world. The beverage program features an extensive offering of regional beers, classic and handcrafted cocktails, and a globally influenced wine list. The restaurant/bar draws from the Chop Shop’s seasonal items to create an evolving menu including steaks, pastas, fish, and seasonal fare. Enjoy our downstairs Butcher Bar for a casual atmosphere, or join us upstairs at the Butcher’s Brother for an intimate, more refined dining experience. In warmer months, enjoy food and drinks on our rooftop patio, a neighborhood-hidden gem. Semi-private and private event options are available in all spaces for both daytime and evening events.

Designed by event professionals, the 1st Ward is a 6,000 square foot, fully customizable event space that can be tailored to meet any client’s individual needs. Housed inside the Chop Shop, the space features 20’ ceilings, exposed brick, built-in amenities including a state-of-the-art audio/visual package, modular staging elements, a guest suite and a professional on-site production team.
