Welcome To

Logan Square

A verdant and hip community that’s drawing in diversity.

Welcome to Logan Square

Magnificent graystone homes standing guard over grass-lined streets, historic buildings, and a neighborhood feel established by the abundance of park-like boulevards, all found within this community outside of Chicago: Logan Square.
Diverse in population and composed of several smaller neighborhoods, Logan Square was settled in the early 19th century and was previously part of a Native American Trail. It grew rapidly after World War I and saw several waves of immigration, such as an influx of Polish and Russian Jewish migrants. Today, the area remains incredibly diverse, with a large Latinx population that shapes much of Logan Square’s culture.
The residential architecture varies from mansion-style homes influenced by styles like Romanesque and Norman to bungalows, brick flats, and upscale luxury apartments and condos.

What to Love

People & Lifestyle

Chic, artsy, and friendly, Logan Square is home to an eclectic population of artists, professionals, and families—all of whom benefit from the area’s laid-back vibe and beautiful streetscapes. The majority of residents are individuals with a median age of 30, and Logan Square has a vivid and bustling lifestyle that permeates every aspect of the area.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Hip and vibrant, Logan Square is always at the forefront of up-and-coming, contemporary trends. The area’s neighborhood-style sidewalks abundant with green spaces are perfect for strolls, and its endless supply of boutiques and eateries makes it ideal for a day of browsing and savoring local eats.
Venture into stores like Wolfbait & B-Girls to peruse locally crafted apparel, accessories, gifts, and art that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. This boutique is dedicated to supporting women-run, fair-trade companies based in Chicago, and every item is hand-selected for excellence.
Foodies can revel in the bounty of dining options, which vary widely in style and cuisine. Delicious casual fare and a relaxed environment await at Reno, with delectable items like their customizable wood-fired gourmet pizzas.
A self-identified, “boheme bistro of the unclassifiable kind,” Lula Cafe is a forerunner in the farm-to-table movement, offering a sophisticated twist on classic dishes as well as a large variety of vegetarian choices. Experience the ambrosial Italian cuisine at Osteria Langhe, or try the elevated deli options at Daisies, where you can also pick up fresh produce and quality ingredients.
Things to Do
Logan Square is more than just excellent dining and shopping—its tree-lined streets are home to parks, festivals, places to see, and a plethora of activities.
At its heart lies Logan Square Park, a lovely green scape designed by notable architects and landscapers such as William Le Baron Jenney and Jens Jensen. Gazing over the park’s center is the Illinois Centennial Monument, a striking homage to democracy.
Experience a taste of local produce at the Logan Square Farmers Market, a weekly, year-round market that shifts to an indoor venue during the colder seasons. Another community-building event, the Logan Square Arts Festival draws thousands every summer for dozens of live music performances and hands-on art workshops as well as food and drinks. Beer enthusiasts won’t want to miss Revolution Brewery’s Oktoberfest, a two-day event featuring spectacular brews and food, as well as impressive music line-ups.
