Where To Eat
Noble Square features some unique and delicious dining options. Fantastic Mexican and seafood cuisine can be found along Ashland Avenue. La Pasadita is a well-loved taqueria that’s open late while El Barco Mariscos offers a seafood-focused menu and a colorful porch. Alegrias is another option for Mexican-style seafood that offers heaping platters and lets you BYOB. Elsewhere in the neighborhood, on Milwaukee or Chicago Avenue, you can find Thai, Cuban, and Middle Eastern cuisine as well as upscale American fare.
Friday Night Fun
Unique and intimate dive bars are characteristic of this part of West Town. Noble Square has some great venues for a Friday night out with friends. Beauty Bar offers manicures and full salon services in a casual lounge area with drinks and appetizers. Elsewhere, nightclubs host wild dance parties while storied taverns cater to a low-key clientele.
The Perfect Sunday
Noble Square has eclectic shopping and unique vendors, many of which offer Polish and traditional items. A relaxed Sunday in Eckhart Park may lead to a stroll through this classic Chicago neighborhood and a visit to the Polish Museum of America.
Public transportation is a bit of a nonstarter in Noble Square. There are some bus routes that run along east/west along Division Avenue and Chicago Avenue and diagonally along Milwaukee Avenue, but there is no 'L' stop, unless you want to cross over into River West or Wicker Park, which have Blue Line stops. Traffic in this neighborhood mainly consists of spillover from downtown but tends to move fairly quickly, so getting home from your office should be relatively painless, even if your weekly grocery run will not be especially convenient.
