The small-town feel of Roscoe Village,
located on Chicago's
North Side, makes it a haven for people seeking the simple life just 20 minutes from the amenities of the downtown sprawl. Apartments in Roscoe Village put residents within a short walk of shopping, dining, and entertainment close to home. Swing by the neighborhood's gated Fellger Park for an afternoon of playground fun, and spend the rest of the day exploring the area's many vintage clothing shops.
Drop in Riverview Tavern for made-from-scratch food, including the Oink-Tweet-Moo burger (topped with a fried egg) or the Lip Stinger pizza, a popular pie with lots of heat. Catch dinner and a show at Beat Kitchen, where locals flock for concerts and stand-up comedy while noshing on goat cheese pizza and all-Angus Beat Burgers. Wash it all down in the beer garden at the Village Tap, one of the leaders in the area's craft beer movement. After dinner, check out Link's Hall, an improv venue where natives come to watch an always-changing playbill of performances by local artists.
