Underground but not exclusive, this Wicker Park outpost offers a full nightlife experience without the formality. Come into the reclaimed landmark bank for a drink or small bite, and end up staying for a full meal, music and more. Sip on one of our signature cocktails in the one-of-a-kind lounge in a former bank vault; experience our boutique wine, beer and spirits selection at the bustling bar; or enjoy our celebrated cuisine in the intimate dining room.

The Bedford is located at 1612 West Division Street. Visit their website at to view their menu and see pictures.

    My guess is “ombre”. I say that because I have a beautiful ombre gown that transcends from purple to teal to soft yellow in the same way this color style does!
