Local Lifestyle

Lakeview is Chicago's most populous neighborhood, and there are many coffee shops, boutiques, eateries, and outdoor spaces to appease all. Whether you want to spend the day soaking up some sun on the beach, playing catch at a park, or sampling local restaurants, everything is within reach. 


Wrigleyville is a great community to check out sports bars and pubs, while Boystown boasts hip culinary finds that offer small plates and craft cocktails. If you’re looking for a boisterous night of dancing the night away, Boystown is your best bet. Daytime calls for outdoor exploration at a local park or catching up on the week’s events with friends during Sunday brunch. 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

Catch an exciting Cubs game at Wrigley Field to show community pride and support, or head to the Lakefront Trail for a more peaceful bike ride or stroll with an unrivaled lakefront view. One thing is certain, Lakeview is not lacking in entertainment options. The Vic is a local gem that opened as an alternative to the more popular theaters in downtown Chicago. You’re sure to find a venue or ten to watch variety shows, magic shows, plays, musicals, and various other performances in the Belmont Theater District. Sit back with some buttery popcorn and enjoy classics like Rocky Horror Picture Show and Little Shop of Horrors at Music Box Theatre.

Things to Do

Always welcoming, Boystown is one of the country’s inclusive LGBTQ+ communities revered for its non stop nightlife, LGBTQ-owned businesses, and phenomenal restaurants.
