What Makes Bucktown Special?

Bucktown Athletic Club is at home in the former Marvin Envelope and Paper Company Building, a reminder of the industrial beginnings of this corridor in Chicago.  The Wicker Park District numbers among the original districts of Chicago, since it was incorporated as a city in 1837, and just down the street from BAC - at North Ave and Wood St. - was actually the farthest Northwest point of the original city boundaries.  Wicker Park and Bucktown's vibrant 6-cornered center has its roots in the Chicago's original immigrant population and industrial beginning.  The intersection of where the Bucktown Athletic Club now resides was originally dotted with small homes, and the Northwest corner of North and Damen Aves. was the location of the local well that supplied water to the residents.

Keeping its pace with the bustling scene of Bucktown then and now, BAC provides a place for those to unwind from their day with whatever type of workouts suit them best; whether low impact, mindfulness classes or high intensity training sessions, Bucktown Athletic Club is here for its members day and night.
