About Venue

Located in the bustling Wrigleyville neighborhood in Chicago, IL, Trace is a bar venue. Its upstairs event space boasts an edgy and alternative atmosphere. In line with the establishment’s mission to create a unique environment, Trace blends a rock and roll theme with traditional sports bar elements. The Space The upstairs private event area is characterized by its striking red walls. Contributing to its moody ambience, the space features soft lighting and black accents. The walls are lined with framed pictures, providing an eclectic touch, while an exposed brick section adds an industrial flair. Rock music-themed decor reflects the venue’s distinct theme. The upstairs level can be arranged for seated events, standing-only occasions, and cocktail hours for up to 150 people. The Experience In partnership with the Michigan Alumni Club of Chicago, Trace hosts official viewing parties for the University of Michigan’s sporting events. Owing to its convenient Wrigleyville location, this venue also welcomes patrons to watch Chicago Cubs games. Equipped with flat-screen TVs, this venue is well-suited for entertaining occasions. The menu features elevated bar fare, with dishes such as loaded chili cheese waffle fries, bacon-wrapped dates, brat burgers, gyro pitas, and veggie burgers. For the perfect drink pairing, bartenders pour premium and domestic beers, top-shelf spirits, and hand-crafted cocktails.
