A volunteer-powered neighborhood gathering place.

The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been the heart of our community since 1919. HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers. 

We're your gathering place and your community. Join us for our next neighborhood event. We hold free movie nights, craft fairs and we turn into your local corner bar on the first Friday of every month. 



What's Coming Up At Your Club?


CornerBarLogo.pngCORNER BAR IS TURNING 5 on July 7th!

5 years ago, Corner Bar started as a small idea of how we could make a big impact in our neighborhood by offering the ONLY gathering place for families to hang out, meet new friends, grab a drink, and listen to some good music. It's blossomed into THE event in Highland Park, and we're still going strong! Come celebrate our fifth anniversary with all your closest neighbors, enjoy the musical stylings of the Drew Medack Trio - who happened to be our very first band at Corner Bar - and be prepared for some new Corner Bar swag available to mark this milestone for HPIC!

SECOND FRIDAYS @ HPIC Friday, Doors at 7PM, 21+

Bring an art/craft project and join us in the Art Lounge where you can relax, connect with like-minded neighbors, and set your imagination free. Let creativity and spirits flow freely @ HPIC.

Or sign up for our Art Class! Back by popular demand, this month's art class features "Paint Your Pet" from Bottles and Brushes. Local artist Maureen Clark will guide you through the steps of painting your pet's portrait! All you need to do is bring a photo of your pet to class, and Maureen will guide you through the process of capturing your furry friend on canvas!
