ABOUT BRIDGEPORT

Bridgeport is a working-class neighborhood on Chicago's near South Side and, as the birthplace and home to five Chicago mayors, a reputed hotbed for city politics. In addition to its homegrown civic leaders, the neighborhood also claims the Chicago White Sox, one of Major League Baseball's oldest franchises.

As part of a vibrant artistic movement on Chicago's South Side, Bridgeport has become a hinge point for revitalizing the area's connection to arts and culture. The Zhou B Art Center (1029 W 35th St) displays amazing pieces of contemporary art, while the Bridgeport Art Center (1200 W 35th St) and Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219-21 S Morgan St) are prevailing staples in the community. 

Among the many culinary and social hotspots in the Bridgeport neighborhood is Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar (960 W 31st St), part liquor store, part neighborhood tavern, and the whole enchilada when it comes to great experiences. Maria’s boasts a large rotating menu of bites, rare craft beers, and signature cocktails. Following a recent expansion, new features include a Warped Space Beer Hall, front and back patios, and Kimski, a counter-service concept, highlighting Korean Polish Street food, helmed by Chef Won Kim. Also, Nana (3267 S Halsted St) has become one of the most notable farm-to-table organic restaurants in Chicago, serving up sustainable, local fare to a firm fan following in a refined, warm, rustic space.
