Great Live Reggae and World Beat
Reggae Capital USA


The Wild Hare & Singing Armadillo Frog Sanctuary has been “REGGAE CAPITAL USA” for over 30 years.  Originally located a block south of Wrigley Field, The Wild Hare has since August 2012 been located at 2610 N. Halsted Street (at Wrightwood) in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago.

Live Reggae in all its forms from all over the world is our passion and our terrific crowds of long-time friends and new enthusiasts reflect the wonderful diversity that reggae music brings out.  We feature local, regional and international artists performing nightly.  Doors open at 6pm with two live sets of music along with a DJ most nights starting at 8pm. Come early for ice cold drinks and the friendliest, all-welcome Irie Vibes anywhere.

Our venue features three connected rooms, The Front Bar, Music Room and The Lounge Room where guests can move throughout the evening.  Private Parties can be accommodated many evenings ( please email info@wildharemusic.com for details) for groups of 10 to 200 guests.

Cover charge is always reasonable and varies from $10 to $20 depending on the night and the artist performing.  Indoor self-parking is available every evening using the SpotHero app and across the street at The Home Depot garage for a discounted rate.

If you are coming to The Wild Hare on public transportation we are convenient to the CTA Brown line, Purple line and Red line as well as the Halsted #8 bus.  We are a short taxi ride from most downtown hotels.
