The booming neighborhood of West Town encompasses Pulaski Park, Wicker Park, Ukrainian Village, East Village, River West, Noble Square, East Humboldt Park, and Smith Park (or "The Patch", as many Chicagoans call it). Needless to say, West Town is one of Chicago's biggest and most highly populated neighborhoods.
West Town has a variety of incredible restaurants to meet friends for dinner or host special events. Check out the globe-trotting, bohemian digs and the worldly menu at Beatnik, or grab cappuccino and rare vinyl finds at Purple Llama. Shopping for your new wardrobe? West Town has the coolest selection of unique boutiques such as Belmont Army in Wicker Park, where you'll find the perfect leather jacket, or the locally-made home goods at Neighborly.
There's never a shortage of entertainment in this bustling neighborhood: from art shows and demonstrations at Intuit, to concerts that make the neighborhood shake at The Hideout or Empty Bottle... or a quieter evening of book readings and a great cup of coffee at Volumes Bookcafe.
West Town's real estate ranges in price and style. In recent years, new construction has increased in many of West Town's neighborhoods, such as luxurious single family homes with modern facades, expansive buildings housing high-end condominiums, and monochromatic three-flats with mirrored windows.
Mixed in with these new construction projects, you'll discover those rare bungalows built many years ago, jawdropping mansions, and lofts in every style from converted brick factory buildings to concrete modernity.
