The Chicago apartment building boom has not skipped over this downtown neighborhood. Apartments ihere remain in high demand, and for good reason.
Dining in Old Town
No discussion of the Chicago culinary scene is complete with mention of Alinea, the internationally recognized and highly awarded restaurant that calls Old Town Chicago home. While the chefs behind that renowned, high-concept restaurant provide one-of-a-kind gastronomical experiences for guests, locals like to indulge in the simple pleasures from time to time, perhaps over a pint and light pub fare at the longstanding Twin Anchors.
Nightlife in Old Town
Old Town Chicago is buzzing these days, not only from the exceptional live entertainment venues of Second City and Zanie’s Comedy Club, but also from the many interesting dining and socializing concepts that Old Town always seems to execute with flare, places such as Alinea, Happy Camper and the 3 Arts Club to name a few. And if you want to catch a gaggle of improv comedians relaxing while taking a break from the stage, maybe stop by Old Town Ale House on North Ave.
Coffee in Old Town
Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts provide quick and convenient caffeine pit stops throughout the neighborhood, especially as you get close to the train stops, but for a more localized experience with great views of the park, check out Elaine’s Coffee Call in the ground floor of the Hotel Lincoln.
History in Old Town
Old Town is known for its annual arts fair, but there's more history to be uncovered in this near north side neighborhood of Chicago than meets the eye. The founder of The Society for Human Rights called Old Town home, as well as the founder of one of the first African-American studies programs at a major university. The actor and athlete who first portrayed Tarzan on the silver screen called Old Town home at one point.
