ravenswood-lincoln square

An Old World heritage meets modern charm in the Lincoln Square neighborhood. Small stretches throughout the area still maintain its roots such as a traditional German dining hall and a turn-of-the-century, European-style apothecary.


But more than old-fashioned shops and cobblestone streets, Lincoln Square is an eclectic enclave that boasts an array of hip restaurants, bars and boutiques. Music, arts and crafts are a focus here and for dining, there’s an international flair — dig into authentic Mexican, feast on French fare or grab a slice of Neopolitan-goodness at the local pizzeria.


Neighborhood gems dot the streets along the commercial heart of Lincoln Square at the intersections of Lawrence, Western and Lincoln Avenues, as well as the Ravenswood corridor — a unique cross-section of industry and creative businesses.


 Filled with gigantic trees, spacious lawns, and old renovated homes, the Ravenswood neighborhood is a lovely place to get away from hectic city life, while remaining in the middle of a thriving community that has it all. One of Ravenswood's (or Lincoln Square's, depending on who you ask) crowning glories is the Old Town School of Folk Music. It originated in Old Town, but the performance venue (which has hosted the likes of Joni Mitchell) was moved up to Ravenswood in recent years and continues to produce great folk shows. A slew of Ravenswood cafés and taverns also welcome live music and the occasional comedy act, in addition to supplying the bulk of neighborhood nightlife. On the dining front, a long list of excellent restaurants has made a blip on Chicago's culinary radar. Romantic French bistros, trendy sushi bars, unforgettable Italian pasterias, and satisfying American diners cover any mood or craving with style and masterfully prepared meals.
