Rhyme or Reason is a New American Restaurant, Bar & Music Venue located at the corner of Division and Damen in Wicker Park. We strive to revamp a decade of elegance and Motown classics. On one end, people were throwing elaborate dinner parties. On the other— soulful music pioneers that were turning the world upside down. Without ‘rhyme or reason’ we meshed together these two separate ideas together to create a venue where the moments we know and love today can live on. Whether you come for our Chicken & Doughnuts during weekend brunch or our signature RoR Burger on a Thursday night, it’s always a good time at Rhyme or Reason!
With a stage to host live local talent and a DJ booth, we’re bringing ‘funky’ back to Wicker Park! Make sure to check out our Music Page to stay up-to-date on all of our talent performances!
