About the Lincoln Park Neighborhood

Lincoln Park sits only a couple of miles from the downtown “Loop”, right along Lake Michigan.

The neighborhood provides direct access to expressways and plenty of public transit options.

Residents are also conveniently located next to other favorite Chicago neighborhoods, including Old Town directly South, Wicker Park to the West, and Lakeview to the North.

While beautiful high rises sprinkle the area, this adorable neighborhood is known for its historic brownstones and other unique walk-ups.

A diverse mix of people populate the area- from young working professionals to the University of DePaul students living near the Lincoln Park campus.

What A Weekend Looks in Lincoln Park Looks Like

It’s never a dull weekend in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

During the sunny months, residents take advantage of the sprawling Lincoln Park. As the nation’s second most frequented park, after Central Park, people are drawn to the one-thousand plus acres complete with a public zoo, theatre, beach, golf course, sports courts, and more.

There are also other popular green areas scattered throughout the area, including the infamous Oz Park, which pays tribute to “The Wizard of Oz.”

Besides incredible outdoor space, Lincoln Park is also full of other incredible hang-out spots. From unbeatable boutiques to charming neighborhood bars, this neighborhood has something to do regardless of the weather conditions.

Dining Out in Lincoln Park 

As long as you live in Lincoln Park, there’s no running out of food options, regardless of what your taste buds are in the mood for.

If you’re looking for an out-of-this-world dining experience, consider Alinea, the Michelin star restaurant named as America’s Best Restaurant three times as well as the world’s fifty Best Restaurants. Alinea features a single, seasonally driven tasting menu of between 18 and 22 unique courses. 

Cafe-ba-ba-reeba has become a neighborhood favorite, known for its authentic tapas, killer Sangria, and a cozy Spanish vibe. The restaurant has also gained major popularity for its amazing brunch menu and bloody mary bar.

For a laidback night full of great company and equally excellent pizza, grab a table out on Ranalli’s massive patio. This neighborhood joint also makes a great spot to watch your favorite sports game or the Bachelor on Monday nights.

When you’re on a time crunch, stop into  Left Coast Food + Juice or Aloha Pole for a quick bite. Both spots offer tasty, guilt-free menus, and chill vibes.

The Best Bars to Grab a Drink

If you’re looking for a fun night out, the Lincoln Park neighborhood is packed with hot spots to grab a drink and unwind. From rooftops with killer views to fun dive bars, this neighborhood has it all.

Lincoln Park has recently debuted a happening bar located right on Clybourne. Beck’s, a family-friendly establishment, boasts plenty of big screens, unbeatable wings, and a killer patio to enjoy a drink.

Head over to Old Ground Social for the best sports bar in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. Along with plenty of televisions to view your favorite sports games, this modern bar offers an extensive drink selection, a chef-driven food selection, and plenty of games to play, including darts and pool. 

For the perfect date night, complete with tasty cocktails and breathtaking views, be sure to stop by the J Parker, located on top of the Lincoln Park of Hotel. The trendy rooftop bar provides hand-crafted cocktails along with sweeping views of Lincoln Park, Lake Michigan, the whole city.

Casual weekend evenings can be best spent cozied up by the fire at Beermiscuous, known as the “coffee shop for beer”. Choose from the wide selection of craft beer and board games.

Popular Shops in Lincoln Park 

Lincoln Park offers a retail scene perfectly conducive for ‘shopping ‘till you drop’.

The shops around North Avenue and Clybourn offer classic brand name stores for any fashion staples, including Nordstrom Rack, Sephora, LuLuLemon, and Anthropology. 

For those looking for boutiques, take a stroll along Halstead and Armitage to find a plethora of unique retail shops.

Stop by Art Effect for funky knick-knacks and cute clothing. Whether you want to treat yourself to a fun find or a funky gift, this quirky shop is a must-visit.

If you’re on the hunt for new frames, Warby Parker’s impressive selection of vintage-inspired glasses won’t disappoint, and neither will their affordable prices. 

To step up your style game, browse the trendy selection that Bevello’s offers. With weekly arrivals, there are always new products and new wardrobes to look forward to. 

Where to Live in Lincoln Park

While the majority of the Lincoln Park neighborhood feels residential, there are a few particular zones that renters love.

Wrightwood Neighbors is one of those popular pockets, bounded by Halsted and Fullerton and Lakewood and Diversey. This lively region features a great mix of new and historic real estate, along with a great sense of community for people both old and young.

Sheffield Neighbors also remains a hot spot. This National Historic District was developed in the late 1800s but continues to remain one of the most sought-after areas for prospective buyers in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. 

Located inside the boundaries of W Fullerton, N Halsted, W Armitage, W Cortland, N Southport and N Clybourn, Sheffield Neighbors offers a prime location, with easy access to Lincoln Park’s multiple CTA stations.  Along these perimeters, residents can find some of the hottest dining and retail destinations.
