Around The Villa

The Villa District was a neighborhood designed to be free of commercial development since the early 1900s. Single-family homes in the neighborhood are inspired by the Prairie School and enjoy plenty of tree-cover. Homeowners along Harding Avenue and Avers Avenue enjoy added green space and trees in the center of these roads. Blue Line trains are accessible at the Addison station on the southeast corner of the neighborhood, while Metra trains are accessible northwest of the neighborhood.

Smoque BBQ is one of the most popular restaurants nearby, thanks to their delicious ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. For upscale Italian, La Villa is another neighborhood staple. Thai and Ecuadorian cuisine can also be found further down Pulaski Road. Some smaller grills on the northwest side offer fast food and casual cuisine, providing choices for meals on the go.

Homes reflect the Midwestern landscape and the legacy of notable Chicago architects like Frank Lloyd Wright. Expect to see unique designs and well-maintained green spaces on every street. The community is bordered by beautiful pillars and landscaped gardens—a unique indicator of the culture and civic involvement found in this neighborhood.

Weekends are relatively quiet in this part of the city, with most of the bars and pubs located west of Pulaski. Couples and young professionals enjoy bar hopping among the handful of venues in the southwestern corner of the Villa. The late-night dining at these venues is frequently enjoyed by locals and highly rated.

The historic architecture found throughout this neighborhood traverses centuries of Prairie and Craftsman style housing. A walking tour of the beautiful and culturally significant designs featured in The Villa is a relaxing way to take in the local culture and flavor of this unique and enriching neighborhood.
