Welcome to Uptown, Chicago’s entertainment hub, nestled along Lake Michigan about six miles north of downtown. Uptown was once dubbed “the Loop’s little brother.” Ever-welcoming, and ever-evolving, the neighborhood is a vibrant, living tapestry—as rich in history as it is in culture. Annexed into Chicago in 1857, Uptown has a colorful history as a nexus for arts and entertainment.

Today it shines as a place to call home for Chicagoans seeking incredible access to the lakefront, public transportation and relative affordability. Uptown’s early glamour is still reflected in its historic buildings and Uptown Square was designated a historic landmark district by the City of Chicago in 2016.

But recent private and public investments nearing $600 Million helped to rebuild Uptown’s transit, streets, public and retail spaces enhancing its vibrancy making it an ideal place to buy a home.

Excitement continues this summer with a $75 Million renovation of the historic Uptown Theatre. This is just one of Uptown’s many crown jewels including the Preston Bradley Center, Lawrence House, the Aragon Ballroom, the Bridgeview Bank Building, the Green Mill, the Riviera Theatre, the Uptown Broadway Building, the Wilson Avenue Theatre, the McJunkin Building, the historic Wilson Station’s Gerber Building, and many more.

The neighborhood also has a number of independent bookstores, art galleries, cafes, and restaurants. The community works to balance new development with a commitment to preserve its past.

Uptown is incredibly accessible, with easy access to downtown Chicago and beyond via Lake Shore Drive, the Lakefront Trail bike path, four CTA train stations, and a Metra commuter rail station.

Uptown United sponsors summertime outdoor movies and live music in parks and public areas throughout the Uptown neighborhood. As the weather cools, community events include Halloween events and holiday pop-up markets.
