Neighborhoods
Ukrainian Village is a neighborhood that holds a special place in my heart. It’s charming with its cafes, restaurants and classic dive bars. It’s walkable and family-friendly while remaining as popular with singles. It’s equally welcoming to artists, young professionals and the older generation.

What Vertical Gallery has done so beautifully is create an open space for national and international artists — influenced by pop culture, graphic design, illustration, and contemporary urban art — to showcase their work. Visit, peruse and take home an original piece of art. Return to see what’s new — new artists are highlighted at monthly exhibits.

Coffee Shops
The Dark Matter Coffee company, a tried-and-true Chicago brand, has shops across the city, including a location in Ukrainian Village called Star Lounge Coffee Bar. Local art is hung on burnt-orange walls and there’s a long bar that you can belly-up to and order a Unicorn Blood blended roast. In the warmer months the patio is open, and you can bring your four-legged friend to join you in the sun. This is a great place to go to meet friends or to sit for a spell with a good book. And, if you get hungry, there are little nibbles and noshes to satiate you.
