A Look Into the History of Chicago’s Old Town Neighborhood
Old Town was first settled by German immigrants in the 1830s, and the historic St. Michael’s Church was built soon after. St. Michael’s survived the Chicago Fire, and the area was originally given the ‘Old Town’ name in 1948, with the first Old Town Holiday art fair.
Old Town has been defined as the area in which you can hear the bells of St. Michael’s. The area is known for culture, and counter culture, art, and a vibrant food and drink scene.
Dining and Nightlife Options In Chicago’s Old Town
As you first enter the Old Town neighborhood, you see The House of Glunz, Chicago’s oldest wine merchants, dating to 1888. While not a bar, it is a great stop for Chicago’s growing BYOB scene. Right next door, however, is the Glunz Tavern, also founded in 1888 (then empty from Prohibition until 2012). The historic nature of the Tavern, and the German food and beer, make it a great place to start (or end) an evening. Japanese cuisine can be found at local favorite Kamehachi, known for being the first sushi restaurant in the city. Healthy eating fans can get their need met at neighborhood newcomer Snap Kitchen, a great place to get local food that is sustainable and expertly prepared.
Nightlife in Old Town revolves around the Old Town Ale House, a throwback to the counter-culture days of the 60’s and 70’s, and a favorite in every guide and list out there. For a more modern vibe, check out the Old Town Pour House, featuring an insane beer list, and excellent menu.
Old Town Culture, Shopping, and Lifestyle
For a small neighborhood, Old Town packs a cultural punch. Old Town is home to the world famous Second City, known for nurturing much of the talent for Saturday Night Live, and launching careers as diverse as Ed Asner, Alan Alda, Bill Murray, and Bonnie Hunt. While it was forced to move in the aftermath of riots following the assassination of Dr. King, the Old Town School of Folk Music is still missed, and the awareness and social perspective it fosters to this day are as present in Old Town as they were in its heyday.
Shopping in Old Town is mostly composed of small boutiques, featuring unique pieces and interesting presentations. One of the best known spots in Old Town is Village Cycle Center, in a nifty just-below-sidewalk-level space on Wells. If crafting your own items is your thing, String A Strand on Wells bead store has you covered with semi-precious stones, beads, and amazing inspirations.
Fitness is a big deal in Old Town, with SoulCycle, a Fitness Formula Club, Wells Street Crossfit, and CrossFit SoNo all within the few square blocks of the Old Town neighborhood.
