Getting Around New East Side

Around New East Side

Fans of chic urban condos and high-rise penthouses are sure to find a space here. The New East Side includes historic buildings with grandiose architecture and luxurious amenities in addition to some of the newest residential spaces that Downtown Chicago has to offer. Home prices and parking rates are high, but those who can afford this neighborhood will live life to the fullest in a highly walkable area that’s brimming with energy.

Casual lunch spots catering to the nine-to-five crowd provide a quick bite to eat during business hours. For dinner, you can find plenty of high-end steakhouses, seafood restaurants, and Italian eateries in the Loop. Cross over to River North for further fine dining options, such as Bavette's Bar & Boeuf.

The New East Side attracts well-established individuals eager to experience Chicago’s downtown lifestyle. Professionals who have worked their way up the corporate ladder will often stake out a place here, as they have both the means to pay a higher monthly bill and the incentive to be within walking distance of the Loop’s financial district. You’ll occasionally spot one of these lucky residents revving up a new hot rod to a group of tourists snapping photos on Michigan Avenue.

While the New East Side may not have as many traditional bars as other Chicago neighborhoods, residents don’t have to travel far for a good time. They can head over to the Cherry Circle Room at the historic Chicago Athletic Association to sip cocktails in a gorgeous space preserved from the late 19th century or watch a game at a pub in River North. Throughout the summer, New East Siders are in a prime location to experience the many events and festivals held at Grant Park and Navy Pier, and when cold weather strikes, they are right next door to a lively theater district where The Chicago Theater, Goodman Theatre, and Gene Siskel Film Center are located.

Grab a cup of coffee to go and greet the morning from the 4-acre Lake Shore East Park found near the center of the New East Side. Once you’ve got an appetite, grab brunch at Wildberry Pancakes & Cafe before spending the day exploring The Art Institute of Chicago. If you’ve still got energy to burn, take a stroll down the riverwalk or enjoy the view from Ohio Street Beach.
