Welcome to West Town

An eclectic and trendy area in Chicago.
 
Stretched along the western side of Chicago is a trendy mix of smaller neighborhoods that meld together to create a truly dynamic and growing enclave. This area offers an artsy vibe with plenty of amenities. The community is home to taprooms, museums, vintage-style shops, Michelin-star restaurants, art galleries, music venues, and plenty of heart and soul.

Additionally, there are plenty of quieter areas to rest your head, including historic single-family homes, brick walk-ups, and more luxury condominium options. The mixture of housing styles, entertainment offerings, lush green spaces, and quiet streets seamlessly coexist to create the perfect area.
