Have You Thought About Living in One of the Beautiful Ukrainian Village Apartments in Chicago?
Imagine what it would be like to live in one of our fully rehabbed Ukrainian Village Chicago apartments. It would be hard not to love any of our Ukrainian Village luxury apartments, but what will you think of the area? This diverse, west side neighborhood has a family feel, with residents who go out of their way to chat with one another; visit the local establishments; relax in their backyard gardens; and stroll the quaint streets lined with mature trees, single-family homes, small cottages, large apartment buildings, and two- and three-bedroom flats.
Once an Eastern European immigrant enclave, traces of its past remain in the area’s many ornate and still-active churches, featured cuisine, annual heritage celebration, and historic single-family homes and streets within the Ukrainian Village Landmark District — and in the large Ukrainian population that still calls this area home. Streets are clean, property is well-kept and beautiful gardens abound. This peaceful neighborhood is surrounded by livelier areas such as Wicker Park and Humboldt Park, so residents of Ukrainian Village properties can soak up as much quiet or as much energy as they wish.

What Is There to Do Here?
While the old churches are still a vital part of the lives of many residents, redevelopment in recent years and the growing popularity of Ukrainian Village have catapulted this area far from its origins as farmland. Today, this highly walkable, charming community has found its place on the “hottest neighborhoods” list in Chicago. Activities are plentiful when living in one of our apartments for rent in Ukrainian Village.
Check out the thriving restaurant and bar scene here or in neighboring Wicker Park and Bucktown. From coffee houses such as Dark Matter Coffee to brunch spots, there’s something for every taste. In fact, you’ll find lots to explore along Chicago Avenue, while new retail shops and apartments are multiplying.
For the full European experience, you can’t miss Shokolad and its Ukrainian dishes and incredible pastries. There’s also the trendsetting Tryzub, offering modern Ukrainian cuisine that includes homemade pierogis, potato pancakes, crepes and goulash.
If you enjoy nightlife, you’ll love the many cool dance clubs, such as The Empty Bottle. Sportsman’s Club is a neighborhood bar with an unforgettable interior filled with taxidermy and a regularly updated menu of cocktails. Pub Royale has a British-Indian theme and offers daily changing beers and ciders alongside Anglo-Indian food.
Neighbors and visitors mingle every year at the Ukrainian Village Fest, a celebration of the area’s old-world heritage centered around the churches that are so highly valued. Come to the party and enjoy the traditional foods, a lively beer garden, live music and games.
How Do I Get Around?
