Just west of the Kennedy Expressway is a famed Chicago neighborhood with a unique appeal that stems from its rich history of diversity and artistry. Within this intimate square mile are some of the city’s trendiest establishments and most desirable addresses. Its primary corridor along Damen Avenue is lined with eclectic galleries, music clubs, neighborhood bars, charming boutiques and trendy restaurants.
This relatively small neighborhood has attracted an impressive population of over 13,000 and an even more impressive array of storefronts and artists. Bucktown showcases its brightest artists at several art festivals throughout the year, such as the famed Bucktown Arts Festival and equally well-known Around the Coyote.
Bucktown is not only home to Chicago’s bohemian roots, it was also home to the city’s earliest immigrants and its new, upwardly mobile locals. This neighborhood has become one of Chicago’s foremost for its harmonious collision of classic and contemporary.
