Historic surroundings 10 minutes outside of downtown Chicago
Winberie’s Restaurant & Bar is located at the Southwest corner of Oak Park Avenue and Lake Street, in the historic Scoville Square building (National Register). Built in 1905 by the Scoville family—the founding family of Oak Park—and designed by EE Roberts, Scoville Square is rich in architectural detail as well as history. One of the few examples of Prairie-style architecture applied to commercial buildings, this structure is the cornerstone of Oak Park’s Avenue Lake Commercial Center.
