Belmont Avenue

Belmont Avenue 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.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
