Around the Neighborhood
The spaciousness, the sidewalks, the foliage, and the serenity combine to make Ravenswood apartments a pleasant and worthy north side destination. As a bonus, the neighborhood is unusually well-served by CTA 'L' stations, the Metra commuter train stops in Ravenswood, and buses abound. Ravenswood has experienced a renaissance over the past decade and is quickly becoming a go to area for people looking to live on the north side of Chicago.
Dining in Ravenswood
Fountainhead for above average pub food, some of it grown in their community garden, and a heckuva rooftop in the warmer months; Band of Bohemia is the only brewpub with a Michelin Star rating; Glen’s Diner for casual seafood where the daily specials are written on the big chalkboard.
Nightlife in Ravenswood
Bounce along “brewer’s row” on the Ravenswood corridor, with stops at Band of Bohemia, Dovetail and Begyle for a sampling of Ravenswood’s unusually high profile in artisanal beer shops.
Coffee in Ravenswood
Spoken is a neighborhood gem that locals love for a quick breakfast bite or cup of joe before hopping on the nearby train at Montrose ‘L’ station. Julius Meinl on Ravenswood offers wholesale beans and Viennese-style pastries.
