A booming entertainment district in the 1920’s and 1930’s, Uptown was the stomping grounds for Al Capone, Charlie Chaplin, Gloria Swanson and others at the time. Recently, Uptown has benefited from neighborhood-wide commercial and residential redevelopment.

The entertainment district is alive and well, serving as a destination for those seeking its vibrant blend of old and new. For music lovers, the Aragon Ballroom and Riviera Theater host performers of all genres. An old Capone hangout, the Green Mill, is the neighborhoods spot for Jazz. One can tour the world of cuisine in the neighborhood’s many cafes and restaurants.

Residents enjoy Uptown’s easy access to both public transportation and the lakefront. In addition, renters and homebuyers enjoy the neighborhood’s affordability paired with a selection of housing styles ranging between vintage walk-ups, new construction condos, rehabbed apartment buildings and lakefront high-rises.
