Top Cinco de Mayo Events in Lakeview, Lincoln Park, and the Gold Coast – PPM Chicago Apartments Blog

It believed by many that Cinco de Mayo honors Mexican independence.  This is untrue.  (Mexican Independence Day is observed Sept. 16th)  Another common belief is that we at PPM Chicago Apartments love celebrations, which in fact is true.  Because of that, we’ve mustered up our favorites out of the many great events in PPM neighborhoods this weekend that celebrate Mexico and Mexican heritage.

Gold Coast

Outdoor Music Fest @ Dos Diablos (15 W. Hubbard St.) – Highlights of this party include traditional Mexican food, bull riding, and live music from the popular cover bands He Said, She Said and The Lounge Puppets. The festivities start at 5 pm and goes until 10pm.
Cinco Division @ She-nannigans House of Beer (16 W. Division) – Although Cinco Division is an effort from multiple Division bars, B96 is broadcasting from She-nannigans from 6-10pm.  Plus, the rest of the shenanigans go on until 5am.


Cinco de Quatro @ Houndstooth (3369 N. Clark) – Nothing better than getting started extra-extra-early.  This May 4th event goes from 7-9pm and includes a chance to win a trip to Mexico, along with stellar beer specials.  It is also guaranteed to have (and we quote) “people that you may or may not be sexually interested in”.

Lincoln Park

Cinco de Drunko Pub Crawl – The name says it all at this 6 bar trolley crawl.  $20 gets you a Mexican buffet, drafts, margaritas, and trolley access to all 6 bars.  The crawl goes from 8-11pm.  Bars on the agenda are listed below.

  • The Wrightwood Tap, 1059 West Wrightwood Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
  • Durkin’s Tavern, 810 West Diversey Parkway, Chicago, IL 60614
