Logan Square

Centered on the public square that serves as its namesake, Logan Square is enviably defined by its historical boulevards, majestic greystones, and stately bungalows, creating a community-focused area that retains one of the most sought-after real estate markets across Chicago.

The leafy thoroughfares — part of the city’s 26-mile Chicago Boulevard System — boast stunning architectural gems, such as the art deco Chicago Printed String Building, while the wide range of community events and eclectic assortment of shops, bars, and restaurants provides plenty of entertainment opportunities throughout the year.

Recent History

Logan Square real estate remains one of Chicago’s most attractive commodities, and recent projects in the area have seen it garner even more attention from upwardly mobile house hunters. Most impressive and beloved is The Bloomingdale Trail, part of the overarching 606 “rails to trails” system, which has turned disused train lines into a new system of parks.

Logan Square’s Bloomingdale Trail was just opened on June 6, 2015, providing a-3 mile west-to-east multi-use trail for the area to enjoy. The community has also been active in preventing the destruction of Logan Square’s cultural landmarks, including the Comfort Station, which now an interdisciplinary art space.


Of course, Logan Square presents much more than a pretty face. The influx of young families and affluent professionals has kept the area thriving, with a diverse array of eateries, boutiques, and bars, plus some of the most outstanding schools in the city.

Families can count on the area’s numerous educational institutions to completely provide for their children, including:

Residents also enjoy plenty of shops, from larger chain stores to the area’s unique emporiums. You can find a treasure-trove of records, memorabilia, and vintage items at Bric-A-Brac Records and Collectibles, or an extensive range of reads at City Lit Books, Logan Square’s famous indie bookshop. Alternatively, head to Tusk for a blend of retro and contemporary women’s clothing, or the renowned Wolfbait & B-Girls Boutique for styles created by more than 150 local designers.

Eating options range from the Michelin star rated Chicago Diner on Milwaukee to the Euro-Asian fusion cuisine of Fat Rice, where chefs combine homestyle favorites with more exotic flavors. Residents in search of an elegant bar for a nightcap can head to Lost Lake for exotic tiki drinks, or take themselves to Rosa’s Lounge, named “Chicago’s best blues club” by The New York Times.

A Day in the Life​

Logan Square remains one of the most energetic and community-centered areas in the city, so there’s plenty to keep residents occupied during each and every day of the year.

You can start your day with a walk along the historic boulevard system, or stretch your legs with the family with a morning stroll along the brand new Bloomington Trail. Next, try taking a break at Logan Arcade. This vintage arcade game museum is bursting with a menagerie of pinball tables and lovingly restored games, and even boasts its own celebrated record store and a fully stocked bar.

For a midday snack, head to one of Logan Square’s many unique cafes. The Bang Bang Pie Shop on N. California Ave. has become the go-to choice for locally roasted coffee, while Lula Café — a Logan Square landmark — remains a magnet for residents in search of seasonal local fare for a delicious breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.

You can then pick up the ingredients for a home-cooked banquet at the Logan Square Farmers Market on Logan Boulevard, or head to one of the area’s restaurants for something a little different. Boiler Room is a perennially popular choice that offers stellar pizza and plenty of great drinks.

You can then take your pick of afterhours attractions. Jeff Kier & The Grilly Brothers, a group of six musicians, play original contemporary jazz compositions each week, while the Logan Square Auditorium offers a selection of live music and the historic Logan Theatre provides a four-screen theater with full bar and lounge.


Logan Square is just west of the Kennedy Expressway, so there are plenty of ways onto the interstate for those needing to commute by car. Public transport is also impressive, with the CTA bus routes #52 (California), #56 (Milwaukee), #73 (Armitage), and #74 (Fullerton) running through the neighborhood and Logan Square station, providing access to the Blue Line.
