The Damen station serves the popular and growing Bucktown and Wicker Park neighborhoods. It is the subject of Bert Monroy's famous image Damen.
Indoor bike storage inside the station. 🚲 👍
They need to install the elevator!
La Colombe Coffee next door is super quaint and super nice!
Be prepared to fight through the overcrowded CTA Blue Line during the rush hour! It sucks!
You probably think you're pretty special.
Stop leaving tips about blue line club car bar and grill... #this is the actual damen blue line train station smh
The information display is handy if you've forgotten your smartphone (or low battery). Nice to get ETA status of the next two trains, weather and time.
If you're into existential conversations, show up between 2:15 and 3:30 in the morning...these hipsters are fucking deep.
The hipsters are a gentle people, not prone to violence or simple food...
3rd rail is great for shock therapy
Blue line smells like a wet dog... Enjoy
Open air train station that is HIGH in the air! Don't look down!
Northbound platform still down for reconstruction. Be early, single lane.
We don't have vendors near Wicker Park, but that doesn't mean we don't want your support!
Don't eat Flash Taco when you're sober...your taste buds will be sadly disappointed.
Listen carefully. The announcer sounds the same when he says outbound/downtown
Why does the express train stop at every stop.
Try the train.
Jamm packed after 730am.
Heated lamps help in the morning. Great place to exchange words and experiences.
Watch out for the loonies that loiter around the entrance
A plethora of hotties at this stop, ALWAYS!
Say Hi 2Mike @Skewers on the street level!
One of the more beautiful 'L' stations! Be sure to take time to check it out.
Skewerz just below on Damen... Delicioso!!!
Hilarious; all the people leaving drink tips on here - this is a CTA stop. Blueline Club Car, a martini lounge, resides near its entrance/exit. Geez.
They now have Security Cameras at ever turn and on every level (look for them when you walk up the stairs)
Highly suggest taking the blue line from wicker park bars to home, it runs 24hrs and is safer than a DUI. Get home safe everyone!
If you're up for it, tracks are perfect to throw yourself and wait for a train to end your miserable existence!
At the present, the station is undergoing some renovations. Paint and wood dust!
Get the Lemon Mojito!!
Pass on the crab tots. All filling and very little crab.
Stop by Goorin Hat Shop...awesome family owned hat store with great people working
Peanut butter & jelly martini. Sounds gross but worth the risk! Smooth & not too sweet.
Ask for the bread basket with cinnamon butter. Seriously.
walk up the road on damen and check out JOE'S JEANS! you wont regret it.
Sunday night movies. Tnite is Christmas Story at 7pm.
Don't stand on the track when the train comes. You will surely die. Your welcome
brace yourself for the wood paneling!
Hangover brunch is great and reasonably priced. $3 mimosas ;-) they also make the best martinis!!
When you enter the station don't let the old rickety entrance doors swing into the person behind you...not cool.
Awesome place, Dave thanks a lot for super fun sexy timez, greetings from Washington DC
New waitress Laura. She is very cool without being fake. Wednesdays are $5 martinis and Thursdays are $4 mojitos.
Mmmmm mini tacos and coconut mojito's
Westbound be in the first car - there's a small exit all the way at the west end of the platform. If you're walking that way it saves a block.
Gonna get myself a bit of the High Life.
some of the best martinis in the city and always decorated for the holidays. conveniently located across from the double door
Cool el stop
