Logan Square, Chicago.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

A number of artists and other hipster-types have made their way two miles up Milwaukee Avenue from Wicker Park and Bucktown to the wide tree-lined boulevards that rim Logan Square, a large grass-covered traffic circle that delineates one of the most heavily gentrified neighborhoods in the city.

Mansions dot the boulevards here, including the former residence of bike maker Ignaz Schwinn, interspersed with dilapidated apartments and humble middle-class abodes.

As such, an eclectic mix of cultures and styles is represented, with many long-running establishments next to newer boutiques and some great live music options spread throughout.

The spread is fairly wide, though, so picking a spot or two to take on the night is advised. Those looking for the highest concentration of options should stay on or near Milwaukee in both directions from the Square, or head over to Western Avenue, which marks the neighborhood’s east boundary.
