lincoln square Neighborhood Overview
An Old World heritage meets modern charm in the Lincoln Square neighborhood. Small stretches throughout the area still maintain its roots such as a traditional German dining hall and a turn-of-the-century, European-style apothecary.
But more than old-fashioned shops and cobblestone streets, Lincoln Square is an eclectic enclave that boasts an array of hip restaurants, bars and boutiques. Music, arts and crafts are a focus here and for dining, there’s an international flair — dig into authentic Mexican, feast on French fare or grab a slice of Neopolitan-goodness at the local pizzeria.
You’re starting to get a little farther from the Loop here, but plenty of Brown Line stops mean a short walk, and the Damen bus can carry you down to the west side easily enough.
