About Us

Big Star is a bourbon and beer-focused, taco-slinging, late-night honky-tonk in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park and Wrigleyville neighborhoods. Executive Chef Paul Kahan and Chef de Cuisine Julie Warpinski’s menu, inspired by authentic Mexican street food, is complemented by an extensive house-selected single barrel bourbon program. Housed in a defunct 1940's gas station, the taqueria’s soundtrack of classic country and rock & roll is selected and spun by our bar staff. We operate on a first come, first serve basis and don't take reservations.

You can find us in Wicker Park (1531 N. Damen Ave.) and at our newly minted Wrigleyville location (3640 N. Clark St.). For more information, visit us on Instagram (@bigstarchicago) or reach out to us at For hours of operation and location info, scroll down to the bottom of this page.
