Logan Square Neighborhood Guide

Neighborhood Overview

Logan Square has a lot in common with its West Side neighbors — it’s a neighborhood in transition. However, unlike Wicker Park and Bucktown, Logan Square hasn’t experienced as much of a gentrification and influx of upscale businesses. Instead, the neighbordhood has transformed into what its counterparts used to be: an up-and-coming area filled with young hipster types who have moved from the more pricey areas of Lakeview and Wicker Park. Interestingly enough, though, the influx of new, energetic residents hasn’t brought the onslaught of restaurants, bars, galleries, and clubs… yet. For now, Logan Square remains an under-the-radar place to live, with minimal attractions but a cool vibe and friendly inhabitants.

Among indie businesses in Logan Square are a few popular music venues, including the Logan Square Auditorium and the nearby Congress Theater. And as boutiques and restaurants slowly creep into the area, there’s still plenty of small, offbeat, and ethnic spots to create a good balance of old and new.
