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. 


Corner Bar featuring The Black Tones - Friday December Dec 1st

We open our doors to the public on the first Friday of every month as a pop-up bar. Corner Bar is the only place in our neighborhood that you can walk to and meet your neighbors and friends, with kids in tow, to hang out, build relationships, listen to great live music, grab a drink, and support HPIC in the process.

Doors open at 6PM.  Bands starts at 8PM.



Art Lounge - Friday December 8th

Bring your art, craft project, sketchbook, coloring book, knitting needles, or just yourself to our community art room where you can relax, connect with like-minded neighbors, and set your imagination free. Creativity and spirits flow freely @ HPIC!  No class this month, so come join us in the lounge!
