Around Sheridan Park

Sheridan Park’s luxurious homes are typically found further north while more affordable brick properties may be found near the southern border. Wherever they are in the neighborhood, homeowners can easily walk to public transportation that gets them wherever they need to go, whether it’s the heart of the Loop or the suburbs. Two CTA train stops are located just east of the neighborhood while a Metra station is a bit further to the west on Lawrence Avenue. No Sheridan Park resident is far from historic monuments and sprawling green spaces either, with St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery to the north and Graceland Cemetery south of the neighborhood.

Living in Sheridan Park affords residents access to a wide variety of cuisine from around the world. Demera, on the corner of Lawrence and Broadway, is one of the finest Ethiopian restaurants in the city, while just down the street, Agami offers creative sushi rolls, ramen, and more. For an old-school diner experience, head to Golden House Restaurant & Pancake House, a beloved neighborhood institution serving classic American fare. Walking a couple blocks north on Broadway Street also brings you to Asia on Argyle, a fantastic destination for experiencing authentic Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai cuisine.

Though a relatively small neighborhood, Sheridan Park offers a wide range of home prices and sizes. As a result, residents from all walks of life call Sheridan Park home. Uptown’s most popular attractions are located just northeast of the neighborhood, so you might see music fans lining up outside of concert halls or foodies flocking to adventurous restaurants. Truman College is situated on the east side of the neighborhood, so many students and professors spend time in this neighborhood as well.

Sheridan Park is a great base from which to experience Uptown’s popular music venues. The Green Mill is a legendary cocktail lounge in this entertainment district that hosts some of the greatest living jazz musicians every night, while the Aragon Ballroom and Riviera Theatre are larger and equally historic concert halls that attract the hottest acts in rock, rap, and electronic music. For a more casual night out, bars like Fat Cat are also at the ready to host a good time.

Sheridan Park homeowners may grab a hearty brunch of pancakes and eggs at the local diner to kick off their Sunday. Later on, residents can reach the lakefront in about 25 minutes on foot, where they can enjoy numerous parks or let their pet make friends at Montrose Dog Beach. To pick out a new outfit or grab some groceries for the week, there are plenty of grocery stores, locally owned retailers, and a Target department store just outside the neighborhood’s borders.

An Escape From the City

Brandon O
Growing up in a nature dominated part of California, the Chicago urban life was a drastic change. However upon moving to Sheridan Park I found myself once again surrounded by tree-lined streets and recreational parks, while also being close to the great nightlife in neighborhoods like Andersonville, Ravenswood, and Lincoln Square. Not to mention, the Aragon Ballroom is a 5-minute walk down the street which, in my opinion is one of the coolest venues to see someone perform at in Chicago. Overall great neighborhood with charm and seclusion from the busy-city life.
