In a neighborhood that has essentially become ""Lil' Lincoln Park"", it's heartening to see the Gold Star holding its own. For longtime residents of Wicker Park/West Town, the Gold Star has always been a truly neighborhood bar. City workers, artists, sport fans and the great unwashed have always mingled peacefully here and it is my sincere hope that that continues to happen as the streets outside get gobbled up by greedy developers. Friendly, attentive barkeepers, good prices and one of the best jukeboxes in the city. Leave your credit cards and snotty attitude at the door, please.
