What Its Known For
LOGAN SQUARE CHICAGO
As a rule of thumb—if your in-the-know friend is telling you to check out a “cool new spot” they found, there’s a solid chance it’s in Logan Square and is, in fact, very cool. With distinct Chicago charm, countless entertainment options, and convenient location, it’s no surprise that this neighborhood has become an incredibly popular destination for renters.
TO DO IN LOGAN SQUARE
If you like your entertainment options on the unique side, you’ll be spending plenty of time in this area. Vintage architecture houses hip gastropubs, cool coffee shops, nostalgic arcades, and top-rated restaurants along tree-lined streets.
The historic Logan Theater is a triple-threat bar, lounge, and movie theater that screens everything from “the classics” to the latest Marvel installments, and occasionally plays host to indie film festivals. Or if the friend group is torn between happy hour and bowling, do both at the Pink Squirrel. The live music scene around Logan Square is also popping—check out new indie artists at Concord Music Hall.
Thanks to the preservation of the historic boulevard system, there’s no shortage of parks and green spaces to enjoy. The neighborhood’s namesake Logan Square Park is one of the most popular, home to the towering Centennial Monument, and across the street from the Sunday morning staple Logan Square Farmers Market. The park is also surrounded by a ton of brunch and BYOB spots—and in our opinion, the promise of bottomless mimosas makes waking up early for fresh veggies well worth it (but if you’re absolutely not a morning person, no worries—you’ve got a Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Target close by).
With a super high walk score, access to the 606 trail, bike rental stations, the CTA blue line, and Hwy 90, getting around Logan Square and its surrounding neighborhoods is a breeze.
APARTMENTS IN LOGAN SQUARE
Logan Square’s real estate ranges from huge greystone mansions and historic apartments to newer luxury complexes that accommodate the area’s rising popularity with renters. Rates tend to be a bit higher than average here, but generally less costly than those of its neighbors Wicker Park and Bucktown (especially if you split the rent with some roommates!)
