Wrigleyville Rooftops

Cub fans have been enjoying rooftop views of Wrigley Field since opening day in 1914, although it was nothing like the experience it is today.

The Wrigleyville Rooftop experience began in 1974 when owner George Loukas purchased his first rooftop building on Waveland Avenue. Tenants and friends would climb through a hatch on the roof to take a peek at the game. As word spread of the good times and the breathtaking views, a cottage industry began to take hold. Rooftop hatches were replaced by stair cases and coolers and lunch sacks were replaced by beer kegs and BBQ grills. Soon after, strangers were asking Loukas to on the roof, and they were willing to spend money to do so. The Wrigleyville Rooftop industry was born.

Today, Wrigleyville Rooftops, an official rooftop sanctioned by the Chicago Cubs, owns and operates three of the original rooftops located at 1032 West Waveland, 3609 North Sheffield and 3643 North Sheffield, just outside of Wrigley Field. All three rooftops feature unparalleled views and amenities plus premiere, elevated seating for a true Wrigley Field experience. Wrigleyville Rooftops provides the most unique way to experience a baseball game in the country. All tickets are all-inclusive and for one flat rate, they include unlimited beer, wine, soda, water and an ample selection of delicious, catered food from their sister property, Vines on Clark, with everything from rib eye steak to hot dogs and burgers, plus side dishes and desserts.

Most importantly, Wrigleyville Rooftops guarantees both an indoor and outdoor seat, with plenty of room to mix and mingle. The guests comfort and preserving the game day experience is the utmost concern.

Wrigleyville Rooftops provide three levels of indoor and outdoor event space and seating available for individual tickets or groups up to 200. Tickets are on sale now for the 2011 Chicago Cubs season, which officially begins in Chicago on Friday, April 1. Prices range from $75 to $200.
