Great Live Reggae and World Beat
Reggae Capital USA


The Wild Hare & Singing Armadillo Frog Sanctuary has been “REGGAE CAPITAL USA” for over 40 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 to three 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. Most Sundays we open at 12noon for Rum Punch Brunch (Free) until 6pm followed by ticketed live performances including music, DJ sets, karaoke and comedy until 2am.

Our venue features three connected rooms, The Front Bar, Music Room and The Lounge 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 FREE to $5 to $20 depending on the night and the artist performing.  Parking is available in area commercial parking lots, street or via the SpotHero app.

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 also strongly encourage visitors and our local guests to use Uber or Lyft, and are a short taxi ride from most downtown hotels.
