Deep Dish Pizza Place with Fun Atmosphere?

Wanting to get deep dish pizza at a place that has a fun, bar-like atmosphere. Quality of pizza is important but without atmosphere I don't think we would like it. Suggestions? Oh and for the area I want to stay downtown/up to Wrigleyville.

Thanks chowhounders!

  1. Well, really, *all* of the deep-dish pizza places have a "fun, bar-like atmosphere". I would decide based on whether you prefer (a) the double-crust, stuffed pizza served by Giordano's, Bacino's, and Edwardo's, or (b) the single-crust, pan pizza served by Lou Malnati's and Gino's East. Beyond that, pick a location that's convenient to you; all of these have multiple locations in the area you describe.

    You'll find more comments about the pizza itself in these topics:

    1. Go to Pizano's, at Madison & Wabash. Fun place, not too touristy, really good pizza, bar atmosphere. Have fun!
