The DraftKings Sportsbook is a new facet in Wrigleyville’s entertainment complex adjacent to Wrigley Field, the esteemed home of the Chicago Cubs. Gensler’s design team met the challenge of creating a one-of-a-kind, two-level sports betting facility and dining experience that upheld the historic preservation guidelines of the 109-year-old stadium while also creating a modern, street-facing structure that welcomes patrons — all within the available triangular parcel of land.
The design utilizes the triangular plot strategically, leaving the glass facade open to natural light. Floor-to-ceiling windows connect the interior and exterior spaces, revealing the surrounding neighborhood to patrons within the sportsbook, while also spotlighting the energy within the building to pedestrians. Tiered seating, semi-private group areas and a monumental, curved video wall enhance the immersive, sports-centric experience.
DraftKings Sportsbook is currently open for food and beverage; sportsbook is pending IGB approval.
