As an artists’ community, nightlife hotspot, foodie destination and shopping mecca, Bucktown is undisputedly one of Chicago’s trendiest neighborhoods.
Bucktown’s restaurant scene is diverse and local friendly. Residents also enjoy a unique mix of independent bookstores, shops, bars, galleries and theaters. Meanwhile, upscale retailers have made the neighborhood a designer destination with Damen Avenue emerging as a must-shop destination. The 606 Trail is popular among locals and brings together an exciting mix of art, history, design and recreation.
Overlooking the six corners intersection, a stunning Art Deco skyscraper is now a modern boutique hotel with a rooftop bar and amazing views. A stately historic bank building on the corner is now home to a pharmacy with stunning archways and stained-glass ceilings that embody happy and healthy.
Located a few miles northwest of The Loop, Bucktown has a variety of housing including modern new construction, stately brownstones and loft apartments and condominiums.
Between the CTA’s Blue Line and numerous bus routes, public transportation makes it easy for commuters to get to The Loop and suburbs. Likewise, drivers appreciate being able to hop on the Kennedy Expressway just east of the community.
