Uptown is a vibrant blend of old and new.
A vibrant blend of old and new, Uptown is an intriguing neighborhood where Chicago’s rich history and ethnic diversity intersect. There are plenty of housing options available in this neighborhood that give you proximity to public transportation, great concerts, and never-ending ethnic food options.
For live music and nightlife, sit back and enjoy some jazz at the Green Mill, a 100-year-old classic where the swanky atmosphere dates back to prohibition’s heyday. Or for a lively mix, go for indie rock, salsa concerts, world-class boxing, or colorful wrestling matches at the Riviera or Aragon. Argyle Street is bursting with Asian food options, and adding to the variety are ethnic grocers mixed among Ethiopian, Lebanese, Indian cuisine, and more.
Historic landmark districts in Buena Park, Sheridan Park, and Uptown Square are just some of the architectural highlights. A great used book store called Shake, Rattle & Read is an icon in this neighborhood as well.
CTA Blue Line stops and many bus stops are present in Wicker Park; however, we recommend walking through the beautiful neighborhood. Freeways are easily accessible, too.
