PIZZA. The delicious pie that drives many mad with desire. A savory and cheesy dough thing that changes form often and yet still remains an object of sustenance we frequently long for. Chicago is known for doing pizza right, so we journeyed to the great wonderland that is Paradise Park and put their pizza to the test.
Part restaurant, part utopia, Paradise Park has quickly become our favorite place to hang and fully lounge in vacation mode. It’s the perfect destination for a workation (hello happy hour!), a foodie staycation (stuffed jalapeños, like woah) or just a celebratory gathering with good friends (Instagram worthy photo opps galore).
Take a visual journey with us to Paradise Park and be sure to visit them the next time you’re in Chicago!
Upon entering the gates of Paradise Park, you’re instantly transported to an oasis filled floor to ceiling with shrubbery. The faux-outdoor space is covered with a greenhouse like tent that lets in all the sunshine. The astroturf ground cover gives the space a trailer park allure that we found incredibly inviting.
Just one sec while we take a nap on the grass…
The pièce de résistance, or rather our favorite landmark inside Paradise Park has to be the trailer. This giant piece of machinery sets an ideal backdrop to make you feel like you’re camping, glamping, or just being weird sipping your morning coffee in some random trailer park. Bust out the s’mores!
No sanctuary would be complete without a claw footed bathtub and Paradise Park’s extremely inviting outdoor tub display does not disappoint.
Fancy a disco ball filled stroll in Wicker Park? We got you.
Time to don your favorite pizza inspired t-shirt or rock your favorite summer frock and head on down to Paradise Park! Where the flamingos are a-plenty and the bathroom stalls are lined with images of shirtless celebrities. Just another day in paradise.
