Third-generation restaurateur and designer Adolfo Garcia is taking over the Wheelhouse Hotel in Wrigleyville. He’s bringing his Diver concept and a touch of Tulum to Clark Street. Diver at the Park (3475 N. Clark Street Chicago, IL) is a multi-level concept. 


The interior of Diver at the Park is much like Adolfo’s River North location covered in florals, greenery, warm tones with the feel of a beachside hut.

The Interior seats 100 and features boho touches like macrame, leafy hanging plants, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading out to the beer garden. A wall of TVs will ensure that sports fans can cheer their teams on throughout the year. 

Beer Garden - The dog-friendly 200-person outdoor space features bamboo rattan lounge seating, egg wing chairs, cedar picnic tables, fire pits, life size wooden tree sculptures with swing seating by artist Alex Morales, a jungle themed mural by noted artist JC Rivera, and a vintage camper turned Tulum inspired bar that will serve cocktails, mezcal, beers, and seltzers. The beer garden is partially enclosed and covered by a cedar pergola.  Potted leafy palms and trees dot the space. 

Dot - A lower level speakeasy bar inspired by female athletes through the decades. The name is a nod to Dot from the classic film, A League of Their Own. The space will open Fall 2021 with dark walls, soft lounge furniture, and a bar serving up craft cocktails.  

The Roof - The roof space will open to the public in 2022. 


The Diver at the Park plans on taking a more laid back approach to its sister River North location with a casual menu of tacos, guacamole, Mexican chicken wings, and other bites at affordable Wrigleyville prices. Guests will see items inspired by menus seen at beachside palapas. 

Menu highlights: 

  • Guacamole - avocado, pico de Gallo, lime, microgreens, cilantro (add lobster +12, add bacon +6)

  • Chicken Al Pastor Tacos - grilled marinated chicken, Guajillo adobo sauce, pineapple, onion, cilantro, tomatillo salsa

  • Almost Vegan Tacos -  sweet potato, mushroom, poblano, chipotle crema, cotija cheese, brussel sprouts

Weekend Brunch Highlights:

  • Bottomless Mimosas $25 

  • West Coast Tacos - scrambled eggs, potatoes, ham, bacon, cheese, and pico

  • Chilaquiles - tomatillo chilaquiles, cheese, two eggs sunny side up, crema (add steak)

  • Breakfast at the Diver - scrambled eggs, pacific shrimp, bacon, cheese, pico
