Fodor's Review

The strip from Lake Shore Drive to Sheffield has an entirely different character than the residential streets nearby. Yes, it has Starbucks and Potbelly, but what makes it interesting are its funky shops, tattoo parlors, vintage-clothing stores, and Ann Sathers. Just past the El tracks at Sheffield is the Vic Theatre, once a luxurious vaudeville theater. Today it's a live-music venue that's most popular on Brew & View nights, when second- or third-run movies

are screened, three bars are open, and the mood is festive.
