Our Favorite Places

Lincoln Square was historically a German neighborhood in Chicago, and some of the infrastructure in the area has retained a nod to that cultural integrity. For example, enjoy a visit to a German brauhaus, or snack on a bratwurst and a beer in the beer garden located above Gene’s delicatessen specialty grocery store on Lincoln Avenue. In addition, Lincoln Square annually hosts Chicago’s German American Oktoberfest every September and a small German American Parade that runs through the stretch of North Lincoln Avenue between Lawrence and Irving Park.

Gather is a new American gourmet cuisine spot that is popular among sophisticated diners of all ages. Their menu boasts favorites like wagyu beef tartare, charcuterie boards, and rotating seasonal entrees that are locally sourced.

Sulzer Library is one of the most prestigious libraries that the city of Chicago has to offer. The after school and summer camp programs that they offer are immense and comprehensive and serve as amazing opportunities for families in the neighborhood to take advantage of. Between Welles Park and the library, there are lots of options for kids in the neighborhood for built-in enrichment and physical activity.

ENJOY boutique is a gift shop and ‘urban general store.’ ENJOY carries unique and quirky gifts and novelty products like political whimsy, puzzles and games, fun socks, and jewelry. They have product lines for men, women, kids, and housewares and also have a second location in Andersonville.
