A creative and vibrant epicenter, Wicker Park is famed for being one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods. Residents young and old appreciate the colorful and lively community, from the iconic murals throughout the area, to the many locally-owned businesses.
Vintage shopping and unique stores are dotted throughout Wicker Park. Exciting eclectic styles at Vintage Underground, urban chic threads mix with vintage at Una Mae's and local women's boutiques such as P.45 and Penelope's are favorites. The renowned Reckless Records and the used book store Myopic Books are long time neighborhood staples.
Nights in Wicker Park are always well spent. Grab a cocktail at speakeasy-inspired The Violet Hour before settling into your reservation at The Delta for southern comfort food and tamales. See a show at Subterranean before ending your night enjoying the jawdropping views of Chicago from The Up Room on the Robey Hotel's rooftop.
Wicker Park is always growing. Apartments above the many businesses along Milwaukee Avenue are a balanced mix of updated modern finishes and cozy features from decades ago. New construction with clean and crisp designs grow more popular by the day, mixed in with warm row homes and single family homes with charm.
Looking for a loft? Wicker Park has plenty of those too, both newer construction and older buildings converted into trendy loft spaces.
