About the Roscoe Street-ery

As part of the City of Chicago’s Expanded Outdoor Dining Program, the 2000 block of Roscoe Street from Damen to Seeley will be closed to offer safe, open-air dining on the street that is both dog and family-friendly. The Roscoe Street-ery will be held Fridays at 4 p.m. through Sundays at 4 p.m. on the second and fourth weekends of every month from June 10 through October 23.

Guests will enjoy food and drinks from Commonwealth TavernKitsch’nSame Same and Volo Restaurant Wine Bar with rotating Street-ery food and drink specials. Participating restaurants will accept reservations and try to accommodate requests for Street-ery dining.

The Street-ery will also feature a “Shop Local Happy Hour” running the entirety of Street-ery weekends. Participating restaurants will offer rotating specials when guests dine and present a receipt from a participating Roscoe Street retailer (store purchase must be made that weekend). The most current list of specials is available at

There is free on-street parking on Roscoe Street east of Hoyne with easy access to the shops and boutiques from Western, Hoyne and Leavitt.
