Pilsen is alive with rich culture, strong community, and all things local. This West Side neighborhood has colorful street art around each corner, and a thriving arts community to go with it. Galleries and artists come together, on each second Friday of the month, and open their doors to the neighborhood and share their art with the community.
Be sure you drop in at Thalia Hall, where the beats and laughs are always going: comedians, indie or rock bands, and even some bigger acts can be found here. In the same building, head over to Tack Room for live piano music, Dusek's Board and Beer for specialty brews, or Punch House for drinks that'll knock your socks off. Grab dinner at HaiSous for delectable and incredible Vietnamese family recipes with a modern twist, or eat highly addictive tacos at Taqueria El Milagro.
From single family homes with all the original finishes to insanely modern new construction, Pilsen's real estate market has a wide range. Two and three flats handed down from generation to generation are in abundance as well, mixed in with old-fashioned apartment buildings. New developments continue to crop up as the neighborhood grows, as well.
