Bangers & Lace

Bangers & Lace




Bangers & Lace is Wicker Park’s home for craft beer and sausage.  A bar/restaurant with the feel of a Midwestern lodge, Bangers & Lace offers drinkers 32 draft beers from around the world, in addition to an extensive bottle selection.  Our beer program is overseen by Certified Cicerone™ Ria Neri, an expert in selecting a wide range of beers for beer connoisseurs to the more casual beer drinker.

Why the name? “Bangers” is the British term for sausage, & “lace” stands for Brussels lace, the intricate veil of beer foam that clings to the side of the glass as it is consumed, indicating a well-crafted beer and a clean glass.
