Logan Square

Why we love it

Logan Square is a thriving community of artists, musicians, and the indie spirit. Its creative energy and urban vibe make it a go-to for locals looking for the next cool thing.

Insider tips

Take a stroll down stately Logan Boulevard, which cuts through the heart of the neighborhood. It’s lined with regal limestone homes and anchored by the soaring Illinois Centennial Monument, designed by the same architect who created the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

Just a few steps away, you’ll find historic Logan Theatre. This vintage movie house opened in 1915 and has been revamped to include a cozy bar and lounge. The Logan, as the locals call it, screens everything from first-run films to cult classics to indie favorites. It also hosts the annual Chicago Underground Film Festival, the longest running underground film fest in the world.

For a taste of Logan Square nightlife, take your pick from trend-setting cocktail bars, under-the-radar venues with local bands, and burgeoning breweries and distilleries. Check out Longman & Eagle, a modern take on an old-school Chicago inn with a mind-blowing whiskey selection. Or order a cocktail made with small-batch spirits at Chicago Distilling Company.

Among the neighborhood’s unique eateries you’ll find Michelin-rated spots, funky noodle shops, pizza places with cult followings, and unexpected fusion concepts. Hip coffee houses, minimalist boutiques, and a Sunday Farmers Market (held throughout the year) round out the Logan Square experience.

Explore like a local

Hit the patio for fried chicken, ping pong, and negroni slushies at Parson’s Chicken and Fish. Catch a performance at cool-kid staple The Whistler, a hybrid cocktail bar, gallery, record label, and music venue. Enjoy a seasonal, locally sourced meal at neighborhood favorite Lula Cafe, a pioneer of the farm-to-table movement.
