Initially reported to open in October (although summer 2021 was the target), Pretty Cool Ice Cream’s Lincoln Park location has delayed arrival once again. According to a social media post from the company, the brick-and-mortar will ideally be ready to throw open its doors no later than spring 2022.

“Our Lincoln Park location is sitting quietly in its soft peach and stone tones while we continue to work diligently on our license to operate,” reads an Instagram caption from earlier this month. “At this point we will wait until spring begins to thaw our fine city before we open our doors. Fingers crossed this scheduled delay will allow enough time for our license to be issued and the preparations to be made in time for the first hint of warmer weather.”

Pretty Cool Ice Cream Lincoln Park is working towards setting up shop at 709 W. Belden Avenue. This will be the second shop to open, following the brand’s successful debut in Logan Square in 2018, courtesy of Dana Salls Cree and Michael Ciapciak.

The creamery offers a ‘unique spin’ on your typical scoop shop. At Pretty Cool Ice Cream, the frozen confections, artisan and hand-crafted, are served on a stick or as bars, and these treats are made in the production facility adjacent to the Logan Square shop, so you can watch as they’re crafted.

According to Eater Chicago, all pops and bars for Lincoln Park will be made at the original production facility and transported from Logan Square; you can expect to find the same selection you’ve come to know and love.
