Ideally located in North Center/Lincoln Square, our apartment is convenient to all the vibrant neighborhoods, events, and sights that Chicago has to offer. But it also provides you with the quiet and comfort you may want, to be able to relax at the end of the day...so you can plan and energize for the next!
Our place is a short stroll away from the world-renowned Old Town School of Folk Music where you can catch jazz, flamenco, samba, salsa, Cajun, reggae, African and other world music on any given night. Award-winning Half-Acre Brewery is just steps away in the other direction! Then there are countless high-end/ethnic/casual dining spots, grocery shopping, wine bars and pubs, a magnificent library, bookstore, European-style bakeries, candy shop, gelato parlor, an enormous park (great for outdoor activities and various year-round events), and many quaint specialty shops not found in other parts of the city.
Depending on your mood for the day, you might start the morning with a brisk walk through Welles Park, followed by smoked lox and favorite dark roast across the street at Julius Meinl, make a stop or two at shops in Lincoln Square, have pad thai noodles for lunch at Opart Thai, then take the 'L' train ride to the Loop (downtown Chicago) for an afternoon at Millennium Park and the Art Institute, then head back to the neighborhood for dinner at Bistro Campagne, capping off the night at Huettenbar for beers. The next day may be a good time to bike around Lincoln Square, have a croissant and coffee at Selmarie, stop in across the street at Merz Apothecary, visit Old Town School of Folk Music to check out the night's performances, then on to early dinner at Mythos Greek Restaurant. Or just go economical and buy groceries/supplies at Jewel Food Store (a minute walk from the property) and have a cookout in the backyard!
