Lincoln Park presents a unique mix of bars, restaurants, and entertainment spots. From low-key dives to swanky hotel rooftop bars, the nightlife typically caters to a younger crowd around DePaul’s main campus. Thriving blues clubs and mainstream concert venues, as well as theater at the Steppenwolf and improv at iO Theater, appeal to all demographics.
Large living quarters at an affordable price point might be hard to come by here, but there are plenty of places within the neighborhood to help stretch your legs. North Pond Nature Sanctuary, park playgrounds, seasonal farmers markets like the Green City Market, big-box stores in Clybourn Corridor, and restaurant patios will all feel like extensions of your home
Packed with small boutiques and high-end retailers on Armitage Avenue, casual cafes and eateries spilling out onto sidewalks on Clark and Halsted Streets, and a buzzing bar and music landscape on Lincoln Avenue, Lincoln Park sets the stage for college students, young professionals, and families who also desire the cast-iron facades and sense of history.
