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 exciting community, from the iconic murals throughout the area, to the many locally-owned businesses.
Vintage shopping has a huge market in Wicker Park, whether you prefer the exciting eclectic styles at Vintage Underground or the rustic-inspired threads at Una Mae's. Record shops, such as the renown Reckless Records, and bookstores, like the used book-maze that is Myopic Books, are complete 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.
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 colored row homes, and single family homes with charm.
Looking for a loft? Wicker Park has plenty of those, too, from ones with large windows allowing for tons of natural light, to timber lofts with a hint of structured design.
