Where to Live
Living anywhere in Oak Lawn puts you across the street or a few blocks away from retail shops and restaurants. The mid-rise condos along Cedar Springs Road, north of Oak Lawn Boulevard and west of Lemmon Avenue, are in the heart of the vibrant entertainment scene. Living in this area means you'll always be ready for fun, food, and dancing. The elegant high-rises along Turtle Creek also attract more upscale residents and professionals.
Where to Eat
Spice things up at one of Oak Lawn's Mexican restaurants. Many are open late and really hit the spot after a night of drinking and dancing. If you're in the mood for simplicity and relaxation, visit one of the carefree cafés and have some calming tea and a deli sandwich. You'll feel like family while sipping on an espresso and eating fresh baked pastries at one of the local coffee houses. Treat yourself to upscale sushi, seafood, or steak in an elegant restaurant. Hang out and have an old-fashioned burger or some fresh pizza at one of the traditional American restaurants.
What You'll See
With so much to do, Oak Lawn residents are always on their way to explore something new. Tiny, trotting dogs walking by casually dressed men sweeten up the streets. Urban professionals are on their way to work and making stops to get coffee. Groups of co-workers can be seen eating lunch together. If the weather is nice, restaurants with outdoor patios are buzzing. Couples enjoy leisurely strolls hand-in-hand along the sidewalks. Residents are getting their errands done by walking or driving to the grocery store or cleaners.
Friday Night Fun
If you're ready to let loose, Oak Lawn has you covered and everyone is welcome to unwind at one of the many nightlife establishments. Dance, laugh, and drink at one of the many nightclubs. Locals love country and western music to keep them dancing all night long at The Round-Up Saloon and Dance Hall, which has been around for more than a quarter century. Oak Lawn also offers sports bars for a more casual drinking atmosphere. Express yourself while singing karaoke, or whistle as others provide live entertainment. Oak Lawn is the place for expressive play, camaraderie, and silly fun. Grab a bite to eat with friends before heading home.
The Perfect Sunday
Sundays are laid back. Families and couples start their days off with church and brunch. Ladies and gents get beauty treatments at luxury spas and salons. Moms with toddlers play in the shaded, padded playgrounds of Reverchon Park, while couples enjoy picnics. Friends play softball, basketball, and Frisbee. Reverchon feels like a natural getaway from the city. Robert E. Lee Park is a more sculpted park and is a popular place for joggers. Dragon Park feels more like a small garden, and lives up to its name with fantastic statues and it's a quiet location for reading a book.
