Opening night party at Intelligentsia Wicker Park.

Intelligentsia has opened its seventh Chicago location just steps from the Blue Line. The new coffee bar is in the modernist 1611 W. Division tower and sports fancy new coffee-making toys like the La Marzocco Strada espresso machine. It's also the first Intelligentsia in Chicago that will serve up beer and cider, which will be on draft alongside iced coffees and teas.
