Old Town

Community Area: Lincoln Park

Old Town attracts residents with a diverse collection of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.

This once hippie haven, located between Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast, continues to attract new generations with a diverse collection of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.

The go-go clubs of the ‘60s and ‘70s may be gone but Old Town’s hip spirit lives on with popular Irish pubs, entertainment venues and the world-famous Second City Improv.

In addition to nightlife, residents enjoy the neighborhood’s walkability and central location. Tree-lined streets are dotted with independent shops, restaurants, boutiques and unique specialty stores featuring chocolate, spices or olive oil.

The upscale neighborhood includes some of the city’s best-preserved historic homes; single-family homes priced well over $1 million and many newer condominiums. As the community has edged west in recent years, new development brings moderately priced housing to the area.

With its proximity to the lake, Lincoln Park and the Loop, Old Town is a top choice among Chicagoans. Easily accessible by public transportation including two L stops and numerous CTA bus lines, the neighborhood also has well-traveled designated bike lanes along Wells Street.
